Welcome to the Pilgrim Amateur Radio Club Website.
The club was founded in the summer of 1976 by Frank Henrique, WA1LGW (SK) and son Dana WA1KYU. PARC has grown in many ways over 4 decades. We have been active in amateur radio emergency communications, class/test instruction, maintaining our 2 repeaters in Truro and Harwich and we are a ARRL affiliated club.

FCC Invites Comments on ARRL Technician Enhancement Proposal
The FCC has invited public comments on ARRL’s 2018 Petition For Rulemaking, now designated as RM-11828, which asks the FCC to expand HF privileges for Technician licensees to include limited phone privileges on 75, 40, and 15 meters, plus RTTY and digital mode privileges on 80, 40, 15, and 10 meters. Interested parties have until April 12, 2019 to comment. The Technician enhancement proposals stemmed from the recommendations of the ARRL Board of Directors’ Entry-Level License Committee, which explored various initiatives and gauged member opinions in 2016 and 2017.
