Welcome to the Shelby Amateur Radio Club's Official Website.  We are an ARRL Affiliated Club.  Our club has been promoting Amateur Radio in Cleveland County, Shelby, NC and the surrounding area since 1957.  We host one of the largest hamfest (Amateur Radio Convention) in the South, The Shelby Hamfest.  The proceeds from this event go towards upkeep of our six repeaters and donations to local and deserving charities.  We also sponsor the Cleveland County Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) Group.  This group provides aid to the local Emergency Management officials and to the Red Cross and other served agencies.

If you are an amateur radio operator, we hope you will come out and join us at our club meetings on the 2nd Tuesday of each month (except December) at the Red Cross Building in Shelby, NC.

We're glad you are visiting our website and invite you to our club meetings in 2021.
