Around February 1965 hams around Norwich NY started to feel the need for themselves to become organized and the task was taken on by 3 area hams. On February 22nd 1965 the first meeting was held at the home of Carroll Welker, WA2RBN to discuss the preliminary planning of said group. The first official club meeting of the Chenango Valley Amateur Radio Association was held in April of that year.

In 1974 the CVARA erected a 65 foot tower and relay station on Shumway Hill about 100 yards from the New York State Police Tower in Guilford NY to aid in disaster communications for Chenango County and the surrounding area. It held its first test on October 24th during a multi-county mass casualty disaster drill between area hospitals and first responders. This new tower eliminated an age old problem of point to point communications between the hospitals in Sidney, Oneonta, Norwich, Binghamton, and Syracuse at a time when telephone service was spotty and often overloaded in times of emergency.

Over the years the CVARA was involved in many activities such as SKYWARN, ARES, RACES, The General Clinton Canoe Regatta, searches for missing children, ARRL Field Day, Radio-grams from home sent to troops during Operation Desert Storm, and many others. They have held affiliations and memorandums of understanding with The Chenango Memorial Hospital, Chenango County Emergency Management Office, The City of Norwich, The American Red Cross, and the American Radio Relay League.

Currently we are proud to hold a membership of over 50 with some being second generation family of founding member’s and even a few of the founding/ early members still active. The current club and repeater call sign, W2RME, is a tribute to a founding member and club Treasurer Duncan Copley.
