The WEDIXIE ARC began in 1968 at Western Electric Southern Regional Engineering Center in Atlanta, GA.  The "WE" in WEDIXIE originally came from the Western Electric Company name.  The "DIXIE," portion of the club's name (of course) represented the Southern states.

Later, in 1984 the American Telephone & Telegraph Company (AT&T who originally owned the Western Electric Company) changed the (WE CO) name to  "AT&T Network Systems."  AT&T (under Federal Monopoly orders) divested/spun off the company to become known as "Lucent Technologies." Lucent Technologies was ultimately purchased and incorporated into ALCATEL-LUCENT (a French firm, today still located in the USA).  The Southern Region Engineering building was ultimately closed.

The "Wedixie Amateur Radio Club" had long since lost sight of it's relatonship to the Western Electric Company name.  The club had shifted from an active employee membership to that of all retirees.  Too, the Alcatel-Lucent company no longer sponsored the WEDIXIE Club.

The "OLD" retirees, have since reformed into the present WEDIXIE Amateur Radio Club and we remember the "Good Old Days" and fondly keep the club active.  And we wanted to preserve the Western Electric Co  spirit.

Our members though active amateur operatures, now move a little slower.  But we still are ready and able to assist the community in times of need. 

We have elected club officers, and trustee(s).  We observe our by-laws and change them as necessary for the good of the community, as well as that of the club.   And we especially look forward to participate in the Field Day exercise.

So ...  Keep an ear peeled for WB4MZO, the WEDIXIE Amateur Radio Club!
