The DuPage Amateur Radio Club (DARC) is a local Special Service Club of the American Radio Relay League, and meets every 4th Monday of each month (except for July and December). The meetings usually consist of: introductions, club business, door prize drawings, & a technical program. No RSVP's are necessary, come as you are, and bring a friend.
DARC holds VE sessions to test for Amateur Radio licenses and upgrades, participates in Field Day exercises in June, and has other social functions in the community.
DARC has three Amateur Radio Repeater systems. VHF is 145.430 (input -600 Khz; PL 107.2 Hz) which is simulcast with the 223. 680 repeater (input -1.6 Mhz; PL 110.9 Hz). The UHF stand-alone system is 442.550 Mhz (input +600 Khz; PL 114.8 Hz). If you're an FCC licensed Amateur Radio Operator, check in and speak to any member on the air. If you're interested and don't have your Amateur Radio license, program any of the above frequencies in your radio scanner and listen in.

More About Church of The Holy Nativity
The Church of the Holy Nativity in Clarendon Hills is an Episcopalian congregation that has been worshiping here since 1954. The close-knit parish is home to 300 members. In addition to two Sunday services, Holy Nativity offers several unique services throughout the year. In October, the annual St. Francis Pet Blessing encourages members to bring their pets and have them blessed on the front lawn of the church. Dogs, cats and even fish also get treats during the service. At Christmas time, a special "St. Nick's" Sunday service takes place, where church members sponsor several underpriveleged families. The families are brought to the church to receive gifts and a formal holiday brunch. The church also runs "Divine Treasures", a secondhand shop that is operated by members of Holy Nativity. The shop is located in downtown Clarendon Hills and proceeds from those sales are distrubuted to organizations throughout the community.
