The Golden Triangle Amateur Radio Club, Inc. (GTARC) was founded in October 1989 by radio amateurs in the Lake Elsinore, Murrieta and Temecula Valley area. The club name was derived from the triangular plot of real estate formed by the I-15 and I-215 freeways. While most of the members reside in Temecula, Murrieta, Wildomar and Lake Elsinore, GTARC is gaining popularity in other surrounding areas.

GTARC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation and is recognized by the American Radio Relay League (ARRL). We encourage our members to also join ARRL.
