Successful radio clubs are a joy to experience. Easy to spot, they are usually populated by enthusiastic, gung-ho members who are involved with a full agenda of interesting things. They are generally at the center of most Amateur Radio activities in town.

Alpha Radio Club was established in February 2021. It became apparent that there was a need in Bulloch County and the surrounding amateur radio community for a Club that could be a benefit to any and all operators and skillsets. We strive to offer support in the many avenues of amateur radio. Alpha Radio Club is very diverse. No matter if you are new to amateur radio or a seasoned operator, Alpha Radio Club is here to assist and encourage you on your amateur radio path. Our goal is to further amateur radio, become an asset to the community, learn, teach, fellowship, be inclusive to all amateur operators, and have a whole lot of fun doing it..
ALPHA RADIO CLUB is an ARRL Affiliated Club. We fully acknowledge and support all ARRL Public Service Resources such as ARES in any and all their events, functions and participation of any Amateur Radio event.

PROGRESSIVE - With knowledge abreast of science, a well built and efficient station, and operation beyond reproach.
FRIENDLY - With slow and patient operation when requested, friendly advice and counsel to the beginner, kindly assistance, co-operation and consideration for the interests of others. These are the hallmarks of the amateur spirit.
BALANCED - Radio is an avocation, never interfering with duties owed to family, job, school or community.
