If you want to get involved in Ham Radio in the High country, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO STOP BY. If you have any questions,please email them to k2sd@arrl.net

Directions: First Presbyterian Church address is 131 Big Valley Street off of Deerfield Road between the 3-way stop at one end of Bamboo Rd and the intersection of the other end of Bamboo Rd near the Blue Ridge Parkway access.

Coming from town, access Deer field Road and proceed past the golf course. Continue straight through the 3-way stop and Big Valley Street will be on the right.

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! THE NEXT GATHERING IS MONDAY, APRIL 20, 2020


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.
