Welcome to the F.M.A.R.C. Website!

The Fort Myers Amateur Radio Club endeavors to further the hobby of ham radio. The Club provides educational opportunities for new hams and those wishing to upgrade their skills in amateur radio.

The Club sponsors an annual Hamfest and participates in the annual Field Day event.

There are also Club picnics and our Awards and Installation Dinner at the end of the year, as well as the camaraderie of the monthly Club meetings, and weekly lunch-ins.  Foxhunts, and antenna parties have been organized and plans for more are in the works.

Amateur's Code

The Amateur's Code was originally written by Paul M. Segal, W9EEA in 1928. Since then it has become, for many amateur radio operators, their goal for conduct both on and off the air
The Radio Amateur is:

CONSIDERATE... never knowingly operates in such a way as to lessen the pleasure of others.

LOYAL... offering loyalty, encouragement and support to other amateurs, local clubs and the American Radio Relay League, through which Amateur Radio in the United States is represented nationally and internationally.

PROGRESSIVE... with knowledge abreast of science, well-built and efficient station and operation above 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 a hobby never interfering with duties owed to his family, job, school or community.

PATRIOTIC... station and skill always ready for the service to country and community.
