We gather at 8:00 AM on the third Monday of the month at Panera 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!

UPDATE: We will meet in person at Panera, and will also have a Zoom-enabled laptop there so members may join us remotely.

WARC MENTOR PROGRAM

If you are a newly-licensed Ham, or perhaps returning to the hobby after a number of years, WARC has a Mentor program just for you. A number of our members have volunteered to assist others needing help getting on the air or learning more about other aspects of Amateur Radio.
