ARC W6TRW
The W6TRW ARC started in the late 1960's as the TRW ARC and held the club call sign WA6WPO. The club became an ARRL Affiliated Club in 1971, and the club call sign was changed to W6TRW in 1974. The club was formed at the TRW facilities in Redondo Beach California comprised of employees of the aerospace company (see Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TRW). Our club station includes 2 Yaesu FT-1000's, Alpha 87a amplifier, and two towers with multiple HF antennas in Redondo Beach, California.

We also have all-mode capability on 6m, 2m, 440, and 1.2 GHz. We have ATV, satellite and packet stations, and a fully equipped emergency communications truck. W6TRW sponsors open 2 and 440 repeaters that serve the southern half of Los Angeles County. We have a new Motorola Mototrbo Digital Repeater on 446.880 repeater in Redondo Beach.

Our club sponsors the largest monthly amateur radio swapmeet in the Los Angeles area for over 30 years. The W6TRW Swap Meet is well known throughout the western US and even the world! It is always held the last Saturday of every month, rain or shine, holiday or not, from 7AM until 11:30AM, in the parking lot near the southeast corner of Aviation Blvd. and Marine Ave. where the cities of Redondo Beach, Manhattan Beach, and Hawthorne meet.
