December 10, 2022 -Fort Collins, CO

The WWV ARC was created in January 2019 to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the establishment of NIST Radio Station WWV, now located near Fort Collins, Colorado.  After the very successful October 2019 anniversary SES, several of the organizers kept the club loosely together and in the fall of 2020 discussions of re-writing the by-laws got rolling.  We registered with the State of Colorado as a non-profit in December 2020, and in April 2021 we established new by-laws and elected a re-organized Board.  WWV ARC is a recognized ARRL affiliated club as of May 28, 2021.  General membership opened in late summer 2021, and we are approaching the end of our first full year plus a few months.

We look forward to exploring and supporting a variety of amateur radio topics, citizen science amateur radio initiatives, metrology themes and issues, historical ties between amateur radio and NIST, as well as continued support for radio stations WWV, WWVB, and WWVH and the NIST Time and Frequency services.
