The Fidelity Amateur Radio Club's meetings are open to all and has a schedule of activities which are drawn up every September. The schedule includes activities for the meetings which include: tech talks by members and guests on a variety of topics, video tapes, round table discussions, and club projects, in addition to shack visits. F.A.R.C. also participates in several activities at the New England Wireless and Steam Museum, including Yankee Steam Up. The big event of each year is Field Day in June. The club usually has a fairly impressive site, accompanied by lots of operating, lots of fun, and lots of food. F.A.R.C. also holds periodic V.E. test sessions headed up by Duffy Egan, KB1EJB, along with the club's team of V.E.'s.
