The WRARC is dedicated to using Amateur Radio to strengthen emergency communications in central Idaho as well as just having fun with our hobby.
All visitors to Sun Valley are invited to use our repeater system and the open auto-patch system. Welcome aboard!
We encourage all Hams to monitor our repeaters while using the backcountry. We have coverage over most of the SNRA and actively monitor the repeaters for backcountry emergencies. Ham radio is the only form of communications in much of the SNRA so active monitoring when you are in the backcountry is greatly appreciated.
