Sturdy Memorial Hospital Amateur Radio Club (S.M.H.A.R.C.) was formed in the aftermath of the Blizzard of 1978. A group of ham radio operators teamed up to provide emergency communications to support local officials and to the Sturdy Memorial Hospital. The club, already past its 43rd year, has a fully equipped radio station and is capable of assisting in emergency communications operations support for the general Attleboro area should the need arise. Club members include technical experts in radio communications, emergency radio operations, radio technology, Information Technology and other associated areas relating to Amateur Radio. SMHARC is a member of the American Radio Relay League(ARRL) www.arrl.org
