The NHARC Meetings

  • The Business Meeting is the second Wednesday of each month.
  • The General or Activities Meeting is held on the fourth Wednesday of each month except November and December.
The location of our meetings:
   La Roche College
   Zappala Building Entrance
   Room HAC 310
   9000 Babcock Blvd.
   Town of McCandless, PA 15237

There are three driveways that connect the campus to Babcock Blvd. If the college is on your left, the first driveway you see is one-way, but the wrong way. I suggest driving past the next driveway with a traffic light and turn left into the last driveway. If you are coming the other way (college on the right), take the first driveway. Take the driveway to the first right turn. Drive past the Library Building and park in the next parking lot.

When you enter the parking lot, you will notice the Zappala Building on your right. This is also where you will enter the campus. After entering the building, walk until the hallway ends. Turn left to enter the HAC building. If you had turned right, you would be in the cafeteria. Take the elevator to the third floor. Meetings are held in room HAC310.

Club meetings start at 7:00 PM. For more information regarding the new meeting location, please check out La Roche's website. The URL for the college is

Club Raffle

The second annual Club raffle for an Icom IC-7300 was won by Peter Olsen, KC3MEZ. Thanks to all who purchased tickets. The NHARC appreciates your support.

For 2019, the Club will be raffling an Icom IC-7610 HF Rig. This is a big step up in prize value and cost. The price of the tickets will remain the same at $10.00 each. Again this will be a very limited run of tickets with only 600 available. For more information, check out the 2019 Raffle Information Page.

VE Tests

The monthly VE testing is a joint project between the North Hills Amateur Radio Club and the Breese Shooters Amateur Radio Club. Testing sessions are held on the second Saturday of the month except December. For more information, click on this link:" VE Tests

Club Breakfast

There is an informal gathering on the second Saturday of every month for breakfast. The gathering starts at 8:30 AM and is held at the I-Hop in the Lowe's section of McCandless Crossing located on McKnight Road. You can also access this shopping area from Duncan Avenue or from Cumberland Road as both have access ramps into the shopping area and cross McKnight.
