The WATAUGA  AMATEUR RADIO CLUB serves Amateur Radio Operators in Wattauga and surrounding counties.  Our home location is Boone, NC, which is also the location of our Repeater, WA4J.


Operating atop Rich Mountain (Elevation 4730' ASL)  on 147.36 MHz, the WA4J Repeater requires a PL tone of 103.5 Hz. This is a wide coverage Repeater, and all Amateurs within its footprint are welcome.


SPECIAL REPEATER STATUS NOTICE:  A temporary replacement repeater is currently in use.  There is no courtesy tone - so remember to pause before transmitting. This notice will be updated when the rregular repeater is returned to service.

The Watauga Amateur Radio Club meets on the First Monday of each month. If the first Monday falls on a holiday, the meeting will be reschedule.
The next meeting is on Monday  November 3, 2014 at 6:00  PM in the Lois Harrell Senior Center, Poplar Grove Ext., Boone NC.
A  new Yahoo Group has been created for the
Watauga Amateur Radio Club.  Go to

We gather at 8:00 AM on the Third Monday of the month at Panara Bread in the Boone Mall.  No business is conducted - just a chance to talk about any and all topics related to Amateur Radio. Everyone is welcome!
NEXT GATHERING:  October 20 ,  2014.
