History

In the late sixties there was a group of 5 to 6 hams that got together in each other’s home after work, mostly at the home of Harold Weir (K4RLK). This was the beginning of the Titusville Amateur Radio Club (TARC). Unfortunately, it disbanded in a couple of years due to lack of interest. In the early seventies, Fred McKenzie (K4DII) moved to Titusville. Fred compiled a list of the local hams using the Amateur Radio Call book. This list was used to contact local hams and revive TARC. They got 35 interested people to come to their first, renewed club meeting. With a lot of help from Les Griner (K4SJC), Bill Hoskinson (K4CUO), Bud Hughes (K4CWG) and several others, TARC was reformed in 1974. TARC grew steadily over the years and supported many local causes, mainly anything that needed communications. Over the years, TARC has developed and kept a good relationship with the City of Titusville. We have had a room for our Emergency Operations Center (EOC) at the Police Department where we used our radio equipment to send and receive reports from shelters and the Brevard EOC in Rockledge. We relocated our communications center to the Titusville fire Dept. as the City’s EOC operations had moved there.
