Amateur Radio is a tool for communication, a hobby, a community service. Examples include: safety communications in the local mountains, chatting world-wide with a few watts of power and a wire hung in a tree.
Welcome to the website home of the White Rock Amateur Radio Club. Situated on the north shore of Semiahmoo Bay, White Rock is one of the garden cities of Canada.
The Radio Club was formed at the request of long term resident and mayor, Hardy Staub, VE7IDY, to provide the city with an Amateur radio communication resource, should the need arise.
White Rock enjoys a great location for Amateur Radio. Located on the south slope of a bluff running east-west on the Semiahmoo Peninsula, radio communications are almost unrestricted to the south and west with a clear shot over salt water in those directions. HF communications are possible over the North Pole to Europe and the Middle East as the nearest mountains are almost 100 Km to the north.
Feel free to browse thorough these pages and use the links provided. If you live near or are visiting in the area, we’d love to hear you on our VHF repeater, or see you at one of our meetings.
Ralph Webb, VE7OM
