History

In early 1970s, a local ham manually compiled a list of the local hams using the Amateur Radio Callbook (a printed directory of radio amatuers) that was used to contact local hams and revive TARC. Thirty-five interested people attended the first, renewed club meeting. Consequently, TARC was reformed in 1976.

TARC grew steadily over the years and supported many local causes including commuincations at Space Shuttle launch veiwing sites along the Indian River lagoon, Fourth of July fireworks shows, the Indian River Festival raft race, and emergency communications support.

The “Mosquito Net” was started by a TARC member in 1991 as a means to promote the use of the ten-meter band. At one point there were over 600 net members in 46 states and 10 countries. The Net is still active, albeit with fewer participants.

TARC has operated two-meter band repeaters in north Brevard county since the early 1980s.
