On May 27, 1969, the last Tuesday of that month, a group of Hams interested in repeaters who had been meeting informally for some time decided to form a new Amateur Radio club - The Lake Erie Amateur Radio Association. Someone mentioned that this new club would need a leader and Bill Hess, K8SGX, volunteered and became LEARA's first President. And thus was born what would become the largest Amateur Radio club in the greater Cleveland area!
For over 40 years LEARA has been providing public service and emergency communications for Northeast Ohio. The club call signs are WB8CQR and WR8ABC. We are an official ARRL affiliated club.
Welcome to our site! Please explore the links to the left and please join us at one of our meetings!
Any and all hams are encouraged to attend our monthly meeting; you do not have to be a member of the club. Non-hams seeking guidance in becoming a ham radio operator are also encouraged to attend.
At the Meeting on Tuesday, May 26
Eddie Stevens, KD8FTS
challenges LEARA to improve our
Always a big fan of Fox Hunting, (AKA, sniffing for a hidden transmitter), Eddie Stevens, KD8FTS, hopes to inspire us anew at the meeting on Tuesday, May 26, with some ideas and examples of how it can be done.
"We were off to a good start last year at the annual July club picnic, but I'd like to see us have more fun with this," he commented. "I will be demonstrating techniques using several 'foxes' for those in attendance to 'hunt.'"
Join us for an interesting evening May 26th at MiMi's, 7528 Broadview Road, Parma. Dinner is at 6:30 PM and is all inclusive (including taxes/tip!) at $15 per person, payable when you arrive. Dinners all include non-alcoholic beverage, salad bar, soup and dessert, and one of the following entrees: marinated chicken breast, roast beef, baked white fish, or rigatoni and meatballs.
Please make reservations for your entree choices no later than 9:00 AM on Monday, May 25th, at the LEARA website or to Marv Grossman (440-248-0031). We hope to see you at MiMi's on Tuesday evening, May 26th!
