• About Us


    The Thunderbird Amateur Radio Club (TBARC) is a general interest amateur radio club that serves North and Northwest Phoenix, Glendale, and Peoria, Arizona.


    • TBARC is an "Elmering" club. We try to make new hams feel at home and provide support for them in all areas of ham radio.
    • TBARC meets the third Thursday of each month at 7:00 P.M. at the Thunderbird School of Global Management located near 59th Ave and West Greenway Road. (Enter at the light at Country Gables and 59th Ave.) Check the General Meetings page for a map to the meeting location.


    Although we meet at the Thunderbird School of Global Management and have a similar name, the Thunderbird Amateur Radio Club is not affiliated with the school. We thank them for their generosity in allowing us to meet at their facilities.

    Check this website for the latest news and information about future events, club activities and programs.

    We have prepared a trifold brochure (.pdf) with information about the club. Please feel free to download it to view or print.
