Southern Humboldt Amateur Radio Club, better known as S.H.A.R.C., was founded in 1986, and currently has a membership of over 30 amateur radio enthusiasts.   Most of its members attended classes offered and taught by its own members, and then were tested and licensed by members, and officers of S.H.A.R.C..

The club coordinates communications for  local events: Kinetic Sculpture Race,  the Avenue of Giants Marathons, the Garberville Rodeo Parade, Earthquake - Tsunami Drills, and much more.  At the end of the year we raffle away radios and prizes at the gala Christmas Party.  There's plenty of radio traffic with a weekly 7 pm Monday local net and chat.

The club owns and operates three local FM radio repeaters.  The 146.790 MHz transmitter above Garberville is linked to the 146.940 MHz repeater above Shelter Cove, and both have local telephone dialing Autopatch access. The 147.33 MHz Grasshopper repeater near Weott completes club coverage of all Southern Humboldt Co. & Northern Mendocino Co. with public service emergency communications, and communications in time of disasters.
