Santa Barbara Amateur Radio Club Begins its 100th Year

Old Time RadioBack in 1920, SBARC’s humble beginnings took place at the Santa Barbara YMCA. Wireless radio was in its infancy and 2 way communications over radio waves was magical and even newsworthy.

Today, SBARC begins its 100th year of operation. This is not only a milestone for SBARC, but a milestone for amateur radio. Few local organizations can trace their roots back for a full century, and SBARC now joins an exclusive list of other local groups that can, including the Santa Barbara Community Arts Music Association, SB Braille Institute, Santa Barbara Central Library, The Kiwanis Club of Santa Barbara and The Santa Barbara Association of REALTORS.

SBARC plans to recognize its Centennial Year with events, exhibits, articles, and more. We hope you will become involved in celebrating this momentous achievement throughout the year, and stay tuned for more information on what we have planned.

Happy New Year!
