A Little About Our Chapter

We are the Amateur Radio Chapter (ARC) of the

Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA).

This chapter enables our members to use their motor homes and radio equipment to enjoy the fellowship of friends with common interests, i.e. Motor Homing and Amateur Radio.  Our Amateur Radio activities enable us to keep in contact on a daily basis from around the nation be it from our motor home or our permanent home. 

To join or Sign-In go to the page:

A Red Icon means that the plotted position is located at the member's Home QTH as recorded in the membership database.
A Green Icon means that the plotted position is away from the Home QTH with a duration value greater than zero days.
A Yellow Icon means that the plotted position is about to be replotted back to the Home QTH due to lack of position updates.
A White Icon represents the Centroid of all Member's plotted positions in five major regions include US, NW, SW, SE, & NE.
A Black Icon is plotted to indicate the Geographical Center of the US and is the crossing point for the NW, SW, SE, & NE area lines. 
A Black Icon can also mean that the Zip Code could not be found in the Database and is plotted at the geographical center of the US. 

concrete5 Website About Concrete5 CMS

This is a Concrete5 Content Management System (CMS) website that we are using for our website maintenance and membership management .  This system will help with individual member contributions to website content along with the Membership Manager functions of membership database management, roster listings, and member emailing.

Individual members can be given permission to edit certain areas of the website directly.  This can help with maintaining content of the website for areas such as rallies, net schedules, hamfests, member projects, and/or good will functions.  As a member, if you would like to contribute content to the website, please contact the Webmaster.

Each member (or the Membership Manager) will be able to check their own status and update their data to keep the membership database current.  Members will also be able to get the current roster of all members as the database is updated.  Only the Membership Manager will be able to update the 'Dues Paid Through' time and the 'Transmitter Mailing' qualification since the Membership Manager is the one that receives the money for those functions.  Please contact the Membership Manager via email or telephone if you need help updating your account data.
