- PiDay 2023
After a two year absence, PiDay was back, the WCARA was part of the exhibitors at the annual Lakota Leads PiDay. This event is to promote STEM(Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) to local families. We had our famous PowerTower which is always a hit with the kids/students. We had a portable 2meter station setup to get kids/students on the air, we used headphones due to the ambient noise. We also had a few hands on activity about magnetism and basic electricity. Our booth wouldn’t be complete without literature about amateur radio, our club and of course the National Voice of America Museum of Broadcasting. We had a several volunteers to pull this off, some on site and a few more on RF. Thanks to all that participated in this event to showcase what amateur radio is and what it can do.
- Jamboree on the Air(JOTA) 2022
Once again this year the VOA Museum and our amateur radio club was proud to be part of JOTA. The museum waived the entry fee for any Scout or Scout leader in class A uniform. The scouts were able to make contacts with other scouts or former scouts. This is a great way to promote our wonderful hobby.

The event was very successful we had lots of kids stop by and play or Power Tower game and learn about magnetism and electricity, they also had the chance to get on the radio and make a contacts or two.
