Welcome to the Northeast Mississippi Radio Amateurs Radio Club (NEMRA, INC) serving amateur radio operators and amateur radio enthusiast in the North Mississippi area. The club encourages ham radio activities in all the areas open to amateur radio operators and all aspects of the hobby. The mission of the club is to further the exchange of information and cooperation between members, to promote radio knowledge, fraternalism, and individual operating efficiency, to provide a service to the community at large, and to conduct club programs and activities to advance the general interest and welfare of Amateur Radio in the community and, most of all, provide enjoyment, fun, and fellowship in the Amateur Radio hobby.
The club participated in several events throughout the calendar year that allows its members, prospective members and those interested in the amateur radio hobby, a chance to learn and improve communication skills and otherwise have fun and a good time. Some of these activities include but are not limited to:
The club holds regular meeting on the second Tuesday of each month beginning at 6:45 pm local time with doors open at 5:45 pm for those ‘brown bagging’ supper and casual conversation prior to the start of the meeting. The meeting is usually located at the Itawamba ICDC building 107 W. Wiygul Street in Fulton, MS. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, other locations are available as needed.
