Founded in 1913, and one of the world's oldest radio clubs, the Cambridge Amateur Radio Association is a full-service ARRL-affiliated (SSC) organization serving Guernsey county and southeastern Ohio. Our purpose is to provide public service to the community, and to be a friendly organization for the advancement of amateur radio locally. We maintain the W8VP two-meter repeater on 146.85 MHz (PL 91.5 Hz), including autopatch capabilty. Additionally, our club has an internet website, w8vp.org.
Our organization actively supports the community by providing communications for parades and other special events. We are an active part of the county EMA organization, and provide planning and communications in time of emergencies. Also, we are directly involved in Skywarn, ARES, and NTS. A net for training in these activities is conducted on Tuesday evenings at 20:00 on our two-meter repeater.
We provide amateur radio training classes for beginner through Extra Class, and "Elmer" all hams in developing their stations and operating skills. We conduct amateur radio licensing exams as part of the ARRL's Volunteer Examiner Coordinator (VEC) system.
Our members have diverse interests including digital modes, satellite communications, antennas, emergency preparedness, DXing, contesting, special event stations, electronic design, massive food consumption, and just plain fun. Assistance with RFI/EMC problems is available to all local hams.
We meet twelve times a year, and provide a friendly atmosphere for all local radio amateurs to enhance their experence in this wonderful hobby. We are always seeking ways to improve, and look forward to new people interested in radio, computers, and electronics becoming active members of our organization.
