Introduction to PVRC
PVRC has a rich history going back to its foundation in 1947, with valued traditions defining our club.
"Once PVRC, always PVRC" expresses a positive open-ended membership policy reflecting the many lifetime friendships formed in the club. Many of these friendships now span the US and the globe, with PVRC alumni found in nearly every other major radiosport club.
Though we began as a small local club in the DC metro area, over the years we grew to in-territory membership in six states and DC. To foster the original local experience all across the PVRC territory, we are organized in local chapters. Over a dozen chapters provide members easy travel to meetings for the face to face experience that is the source of tower parties, physical help, elmering, personal encouragement, and just plain fun - the glue that bonds us together.
PVRC members are e-wired, in constant communication via the PVRC e-mail reflectors. We use the reflectors to organize and function as an entire club, schedule club-wide events, set ourselves up for contests, share experience and access the incredible knowledge base of our members. We draw our officers and trustees from all across the club territory, and they largely communicate across this geography via electronic means.
The PVRC 5 Million Award Program recognizes our members' contribution to club competition by awarding points for scores submitted on behalf of PVRC. We award a very neat plaque for reaching 5 million points with endorsements for levels beyond.
Please explore the PVRC web site to learn more about us, and we cordially invite you to contact an officer or a Chapter Chair to begin exploring how membership in PVRC can benefit you as a radiosport player and competitor!
