West Chester Amateur Radio Association, a division of National Voice of America Museum of Broadcasting, is organized to promote amateur radio and provide facilities for members and guests to meet, operate WC8VOA, and exchange information about the hobby.
The club has members with many different backgrounds, and technical training and interests. WC8VOA has four HF operating positions, functioning in voice, cw, and data modes. WC8VOA/R is a Yaesu Fusion repeater, operating in the automatic mode. (145.39- No Tone). We also operate an APRS beacon/relay station with the call sign WC8VOA.
We also operate 10 Ghz EME, several contests each year, and ARRL Field Day.
An open operating night is held at 7:00 PM each Wednesday, and everyone is welcome to visit. Click ABOUT US in the toolbar for more information.

On Saturday October 8th iSPACE students in Cincinnati were able to talk to astronaut Kate Rubins (KG5FYJ) aboard the International Space Station with the help of our club and the VOA Museum. The contact only lasted 10 minutes but I’m sure everyone will remember this exciting QSO for a very long time.
