OCARC “RF” Newsletter Index:

Find the Current & Previous Issues of “RF” Newsletter Here.

The Orange County Amateur Radio Club publishes a monthly newsletter titled “RF” (Radio Frequency). The first issue was printed in November of 1953. In the early years the publication was sporatic, but it grew into an eight page newsletter for many years and into the even larger newsletter it is today.

These issues of “RF” are in PDF format. Adobe provides a free PDF reader program for all popular operating systems. The latest versions are available by clicking on the Adobe Acrobat© logo above to the right. Later versions of the Macintosh© OS X also include a program called Preview that will open and display PDF files.

Recently added issues are shown outlined, like this: January.

As of early September all available issues have been scanned, cleaned up and posted here. If additional issues are found they will be included. Click here to see a list of missing issues. CAN YOU HELP?

An Article Index of “RF” issues is available as a searchable Excel© file. You may download it here:

A special thanks goes out to Ken - W6HHC, Art - K7ZE, Bob - WT6A, and Bob - WB6IXN (our Historian Emeritus) and Bob, AF6C (All former editors) for providing back issues.

The scanning of “RF” Newsletters. has been a monumental task It has taken around than seven years to get the old issues scanned and posted. A lot of the effort went into cleaning up the scans, repairing missing text that disappeared after the newsletter was three-hole punched through text that extended too close to the edge, etc.
