Ottawa Area Local Clubs

The Ottawa area is well served with active ham radio clubs and organisations. We strongly encourage you to join one or more of the clubs and groups, they are a great way to expand your knowledge of ham radio, learn about technical characteristics and operating procedures that we believe will enhance your enjoyment of the hobby. They are also a gateway to ham radio activities from public service events to outdoor and remote operations such as Parks on the Air (POTA) and Summits on the Air (SOTA).

The following clubs/groups are listed in alphabetical order:

Club de Radio Amateur Outaouais Inc.
