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.
Party with LEARA at
Massimo da Milano
West 25th & Detroit
6:30 PM November 29, 2016
Your post-election sighs of relief may need reinforcement by Tuesday, November 29, 6:30 PM, when it becomes time for us all to PARTY!
We're back at Massimo's again for the annual club Holiday observance. Bring your spouse or guest to West 25th where LEARA will help you celebrate.
The plan calls for bingo provided by "Bingo Bob," W2THU, for LEARA bucks (free dinner next meeting) and a new Yaesu FT-60 HT as a handsome door prize!
For dinner you will need only $20, for which the full Italian Buffet will unfold, including beef, chicken and pasta offerings, soft drinks, and coffee, all included. The cash bar nearby will be ready to provide any supplementary adult beverages you might desire!
Please remember that, while specific entrée requests are NOT necessary, reservations are due by NOON on the FRIDAY before, i.e., on November 25th. Tell us the total number of dinners you will need.
Reservations may be made either by using the "dinner reservation" section at www.leara.org, or by leaving a message with Marv Grossman at 440-248-0031.
There is parking available south of the building and nearby. Massimo da Milano's Restaurant is at 1400 West 25th Street in Cleveland, near the west end of the Detroit -Superior bridge.
Don't miss this annual bash! Pick up a brand new HT or a future free dinner, and enjoy a great evening with friends.
See you there, Tuesday, November 29!
