The JMRA meets the third Tuesday of each month at 7:30 PM. The meetings are held at alternating locations (although occasionally a meeting date or time must be changed; so always be sure to check out the interests section of this page to verify meeting date and location). Meetings are open to all amateur radio operators and enthusiasts. Membership fees are ten dollars a year for regular membership and an additional ten dollars a year for phone patch privileges. Membership fees for family members (family member must live in same household) are half price. Membership fees for students are also half price.
The club's annual Hamfest, which is held at the carnival grounds in Beech Haven, Pennsylvania in July, offers testing for amateur radio licensing. There are also tables where vendors sell a variety of new and used amateur radio equipment and accessories. For more information about this year's Hamfest check out the interests section of this page regularly. We will post details in the interests section of this page as they become available.
Members of JMRA, if you have any pictures of yourself, your family, or even of your rig that you would like to see on this page, please feel free to send them to me at KB3EXG@aol.com (for those of you who do not have access to a scanner, if you give your pictures to Charlie or Mike I can scan them for you. All pictures will be returned). Any stories that you would like to share about your experiences as an amateur radio operator can also be sent to me for display on this page. I will post your pictures to the photo album and all stories will be posted in the interests section.
We hope to see you all at our Hamfest and at our meetings!...73's to all!
