JCARA Club meetings

All are welcome to come to our meetings. It’s a great time to be face to face* with your fellow hams, or to learn about Amateur Radio. Meetings are held monthly on the last Tuesday of the month, except in December. The meeting in December is replaced by the club’s annual Christmas dinner. Social time is 6:30 p.m. and the meeting starts at 7:00 p.m. local time.

We hope to see you at the meeting. Please make arrangements to attend. This is your club so we welcome and encourage your participation.

* Meeting Notation:  From time to time we may have to meet on the air via the 145.110 MHz (W5WA) repeater [analog mode] due to mandated health guidance.  Please check the website and listen for announcements on the W5WA repeater.  Whether meeting in person or on the air the meeting will begin at 7 p.m. local time on the last Tuesday of the month except December as noted above.
