The Potomac Highlands Amateur Radio Club, also known as "PHARC", is a non-profit association of federally licensed Amateur Radio operators (also known as "ham radio" operators) who primarily reside in beautiful eastern West Virginia.
Our members are all volunteers. We are experienced and capable of providing non-commercial radio telecommunications, independent of public and/or commercial networks. Members of our Club provide vital communications services in this part of the state of West Virginia and we strive to live up to ham radio's motto: "When all else fails... ...Amateur Radio works!"
