KY4ARC was formed in February 2006. Like most clubs it has seen its membership fluctuate over the years. When the hobby first went to the "no code tech" licensing system in the early ‘90's there was a drastic increase in the number of folks entering the hobby. For a while, the numbers have dwindled - we think in large part due to the widespread use of
cell phones and other communication devices. However, recently, we now see a renewed interest in the hobby with the move away from Morse Code altogether.


KY4ARC meets monthly on the First Thursday of the month at the Mayo Methodist Church (325 Third Street), Paintsville, Kentucky at 7:00p.m. (2300z).  VE testing starts at 6:00pm (2200z) by previous appointment. Come early if want to fellowship with others. For those who use\ GPS, the co-ordinance is 37° 48' 58.61"N by 82° 48' 26.25"W.

Text Box: IF you are interested in taking a test for amateur radio license, contact a member of our ARRL VE team to arrange for the test. We will schedule the test or you can come to any club meeting at 6:00 PM .

Our club will be operating in the upcoming Field Day at Paintsville Lake State Park. We will set up starting 10:00 am Saturday morning.  All interested parties are welcome to come out to visit us and see what ham radio is all about.  Directions to get to our operating site are as follows.


From Route 23, get off at the Paintsville exit and turn onto Route 40. Coming from the north, you will turn right at the traffic light to stay on Route 40.  From the south, you will go straight at the traffice light.  Stay on 40 for approximately 2miles and then turn right onto Route 2275.  You should see a sign directing you to Paintsville Dam here also. Keep on that road until you enter the parking lot of the marina.Go into the parking lot and bear to the right.  We will be in the picnic shelter all the way to the right and next to the water.  Look for antennas and wires!
