MCWA is not a repeater club, or DX
club, or VHF club. It is a HAM Radio club that is here
for sharing information and helping others.
Everyone is welcome! You don't have to
be a member to attend our meetings. You may want to
become a member to support the club after you have
attended a few times and made some new friends. Membership
is currently $10.00 per annum, for only this our 35th
Newsletter - MCWA publishes a
currently edited by Jerry, N9AVY. You are encouraged to
submit articles to Jerry for publication. Let's let the
editor/publisher do just that and not have to be the
Talk-In - 145.410 -600 PL 107.2 for
talk-in to the meetings. This repeater is not owned, but
is supported by most MCWA members and other fine hams
around the county. You will find a terrific bunch of
individuals with different groups of people using the
repeater at different times of the day. Be sure and
check in on Sunday nights for the RAIN Report followed
by Radio - Tradio. For other repeaters in the area,
follow this link.
We would love for you to share your
talents with us by giving a program. You can talk about
your antenna farm, ham shack, DXpedition, mobile
installation, radio rebuilds, or whatever you enjoy
about the hobby. There are so many facets of this hobby
to share with others. People need to learn what else is
out there for their enjoyment.
We have a library
- you are welcome to take a book home to return next

We ask that you sign up with your name and callsign. You
do not have to be a member of MCWA to join. Membership
is at the discretion of the moderator.
