Welcome to the Shingletown Amateur Radio Club (STARC).  Our club is made up of a great group of new and experienced anateur radio operators who live in and around Shingletown, California.  Shingletown is located approximately 27 miles east of Redding, CA. in Shasta County, just a few short miles from beautiful Mt. Lassen Volcanic National Park.  Our club callsign, WO6P, is in memory of Richard Cloyd (SK).  Richard was very active in the Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) and was the Emergency Coordinator for Shasta-Tehama ARES for many years.

The mission of the Shingletown Amateur Radio Club is three-fold:  (1) to provide effective HAM radio service communication to the Shingletown community and other appropriate entities, during both normal and abnormal times (emergencies/disasters) as needed;  (2) to provide training and encouragement to those members wanting to improve their HAM radio skills and equipment;  and (3) to provide fellowship to members through training and service to our community.  Members will at all times, conduct themselves in a manner that reflects favorably on the amateur radio service, our local Club, and our Community.

STARC is an ARRL affiliated and insured club. (Pacific Division, Sacramento Valley Section) 

The club meets on the first Tuesday of each month, at Open Door Community Church, at 33883 State Highway 44, Shingletown, CA.  Meeting time is 7:00 PM local time. The club holds a weekly 2M net on Tuesdays at 7:00 PM local time on the WO6P repeater (147.030, positive offset, PL 88.5.) There are no nets on meeting nights. (The WO6P repeater is owned and maintained by STARC.) The club has recently purchased a 2nd repeater to increase the communications coverage in the Shingletown area. We are hoping to have this new equipment operating by the end of December 2018.

We also offer amateur radio licensing exams every other month which are sponsored by the Shingletown ARRL Volunteer Examiner Team.  Licensing exams are held at the same location as the monthly meetings.  We request that candidates pre-register.

STARC member W6RKK (Rick Booth) and W0TES (Tim Spurgeon-Central Missouri Radio Association) met with members of the Chinese Taipei Amateur Radio League (CTARL) on October 13, 2016 in Taipei, Taiwan. The meeting was initiated by W6RKK and W0TES and coordinated by David Kao (BV2FP-Secretary General of CTARL). CTARL members present were: David Kao-BV2FP, Wayne Lai-BU2DC, Ken Hoshino-BM2JCC, Chan Pan Lee-BX2AB, Yung Jen Wang-BU2BV, Larry Lai-BV2BJ, and Jin M.C.-BV2MV. The meeting was simply a "meet and greet" occasion. A great time was had by all and the meeting reinforced the shared friendship of amateur radio operators around the world.
