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.

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

Recently 1974 and 1975 were completed. Missing issues were found in the private libraries of Art - K7ZE and Ken W6HHC. Also, issues from the [then] editor Bob WT6A for all of 1976 and most of 1977 are currently being scanned.

The only issues in the historian's records for the years 1976 through 1978 are the last three months of 1978. Fortunately we have found many of the missing issues thanks to former member Bob - WT6A. I have yet to pick them up from him.

All of the 1978 issues are missing, as are . Does anyone have any old RF's around? Please lt us scan them. We do have a complete set of 1975 RF that are being scanned and put up, about half of them have been posted. I'd like to thank Art K7ZE For supplying Nov and Dec 1975.

This was a lot of work over more than six years. I am currently working on the 1976 and 1977 issues of “RF” Newsletters.
