The Halifax Amateur Radio Club (H.A.R.C.), VE1FQ, has a long history dating back to its inception in 1933 and is one of the oldest amateur radio clubs in Canada.
HARC provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and information related to radio communications and technical experimentation. Ham radio provides an alternative means of communication during natural disasters and other emergencies.
HARC can provide communications facilities to aid government agencies in times of crisis. This fulfills amateur radio's legislated mandate to provide public service communication.
HARC allows people interested in amateur radio many opportunities for fellowship and projects of many types.
