The Nashoba Valley Amateur Radio Club (NVARC) was formed in Groton Massachusetts in the spring of 1992 and has grown from the original 13 founders to over 60 members.  While our membership is centered in the towns of Groton and Pepperell, our membership includes residents from several surrounding towns in north central Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire, and extends as far as Florida and Scotland. Our purpose is to facilitate the exchange of information and general cooperation relating to Amateur Radio and to conduct club programs and activities to advance the interest and welfare of Amateur Radio in the general community.  

A Special Service Club of the ARRL, we are actively involved with introducing the general populace to Amateur Radio (Field Day, "Ham Radio 101" presentation at the local library, Girl Scouts' "Thinking Day on the Air"), sponsor club activities (the "Lantern Battery Challenge") and perform communications services for local charity events (Groton Road Race and Townsend Canoe Race). NVARC also hosts the web page for the Central Mass Two Meter Traffic Net, and several members provide Volunteer Examinations for prospective and upgrading hams in conjunction with another area club.

NVARC is the sponsor of the Worked All Massachusetts Counties Award, and helps maintain local repeaters on 6m, 2m, and 70cm.

The Club meets at the Pepperell Community Center at 7:30 PM on the third Thursday of the month.
