We serve Hancock County, located in the Northern Panhandle of West Virginia. We were formed in February of 2018 and are growing in numbers. We are an ARRL Affiliated Club. We participate in the annual ARRL Field Day event, which is held the 4th weekend in June.

     Our club is devoted to continue the pursuit of amateur radio for the enjoyment of members and for the service to the community. We provide communications for parades, races, etc. If you are having such an event and would like our assistance please ask. We also work closely with the Hancock County EMA to provide emergency back up communications.

     We are an ACTIVE club and hold events and training regularly. We try to cover topics of interest to those just starting out as well as advanced topics for veteran operators. Please see our Events Schedule page for current information.
