About the Club

The Tobacco Valley Amateur Radio Club (TVARC) was formed on Field Day 2005! We hold the club call sign K7EUR. It is our goal to provide service to the Tobacco Valley and expand the membership of our club and educate the public on the value of Amateur Radio.

For years the Amateur Radio Operator population in this area has ebbed up and down. To our knowledge there has never been a formal club but there has been a considerable amount of activity. If you get a chance, please visit the Historic Village in Eureka and view some of the earlier years radio equipment.

The Tobacco Valley is located in the Northwest corner of the State of Montana and is surrounded by the Kootenai National Forest. The incorporated Towns of Eureka and Rexford are within 7 miles of the Canadian border. Other outlying communities are Stryker, Trego, Fortine, West Kootenai. Highway 93 runs north and south through the middle of the rolling hills and is a major transportation route in North America, connecting Canada with Mexico. State Highway 37 runs to the west to the County seat of Libby, some 67 miles away.
