ROARS Introduction

The Ramona Outback Amateur Radio Society (ROARS), N6ROR, is a non-profit 501c3 club created in 1989 in Ramona to provide fellowship and emergency communications in Ramona (particularly important here because of our geographic isolation).  See the History tab for the early details of ROARS.  It is a unique story.

ROARS continues today as a vibrant club with the same charter and over 50 members.  Using simplex and several club-owned repeaters, ROARS covers the Ramona valley, San Diego Country Estates, and our back-country north to Palomar and east to Julian, Ranchita and the Cuyamaca Mountains.

ROARS has custom-made communications trailers that allow us to immediately field  complete self-contained self-powered HF/VHF/UHF communications stations.  In addition to having fun, we train with these stations to benefit our members and the community if we ever have communications failures.

ROARS is also unique in that we have a communications store (All Day Radio) in west Ramona on Highway 67.  You see ROARS signs there when you enter or leave Ramona.  With the closure of HRO in San Diego, this is a big plus.

We welcome anyone interested in participating in the fun, education and emergency communications that ROARS offers.
