    • Welcome to the Amateur Radio Portable Operators Club

      Dedicated to supporting Amateur Radio Portable Operators worldwide.

      Lack of space, small gardens, planning issues and man made noise are just a few of the reasons operating at home is difficult for some and why operators choose to go portable. Other enjoy the outdoors or experimenting with different antenna designs. Whatever the reason, ARPOC is the worldwide club dedicated to portable operators.

      It's free to join in the fun and collect ARPOC awards for portable operating, use our location map to find great portable operating areas near you and get involved in the discussions on the forums to get the most from your portable operating.
