LEARA meets at MiMi's October 28
Introduction And Training in CoCoRaHS
by Mat Nickoson, KC8NZJ
As the "S Word" creeps back into your vocabulary this fall you may want to upgrade your skills as a different kind of official weather observer! The October LEARA meeting will provide you with the perfect chance.
Our meeting this month will feature a training presentation by Mat Nickoson, KC8NZJ, the Cuyahoga County coordinator for CoCoRaHS, the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network. Mat was first acquainted with this program as a Skywarn observer in Florida, and brought it along to our area when he moved in 2011. "This training to night will officially qualify you as a CoCoRaHS observer!"
On October 28th we will meet at MiMi's, 7528 Broadview Road, Parma for our dinner meeting. Dinner is at 6:30 pm and is all inclusive (including taxes/tip!) for $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 your reservations for your entree choices no later than on Monday, October 27th at 9:00 am to the LEARA website or to Marv Grossman (440-248-0031). We hope to see you at the meeting on Tuesday, October 28th!

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.
Items in red are LEARA club events, green are hamfests, and gray are holidays.
