Dixie Amateur Radio Club, Inc (DARC) is in the process of adding a Battery & Solar backup power system to our Amateur Radio Repeater System. DARC is a 501(c)3 non-profit educational service organization that serves Southern Utah. Our radio operators volunteer to do communications and safety backup for races, triathlons, car rallies and when called-out we can serve the community and local hospital and health department personnel in case of floods, earthquakes, pandemics and other emergencies.
Backup power is important in case the power grid goes down--we can communicate then even if the cell system is down. We are raising funds for that project.
