Amateur Radio Interest Dichotomy

Amateur Radio Interest Dichotomy (otherwise known as ARID) is an amateur radio club based in Dallas, Georgia, serving the area of Temple, Villa Rica, Dallas, and neighboring cities and towns. We are dedicated to exploring new amateur radio technology capabilities, intriguing the minds of prospective hams, and continuing the ham radio journey for existing operators.



We, as a club, want to bring new interest to Ham Radio by recruiting new members, welcoming them to participate as much or as little as wanted, and to make a welcoming, educational, and fun environment for our new members and for those who are interested in Ham Radio operations.

BRING opportunities

We want to welcome anyone who has interest in Amateur Radio operations to have opportunities to grow their knowledge and understanding of amateur radio, and bring new opportunities for those who are invested in creating new ways to communicate. We plan to host prizes for innovation, and offer easy ways to become licensed, and upgrade licenses.


We want to encourage new modes and fields of communication, have field trips, explore usage of many different modes of amateur radio communication, and overall bring a lot more knowledge of the ever-growing complexity of amateur radio than just what meets the eye. We plan on hosting radio communication nets or projects to see just how far we, as a club, can reach in the world.

This club is made to have the interest of the greater community in mind, and to expand our group to new and experienced ham operators alike, in the hopes to create a welcoming environment for our members.
