The Lake County Amateur Radio Association (LCARA) is a group dedicated Amateur Radio Operators that foster the advancement of the Amateur Radio hobby. We sponsor a number of activities throughout the year including Field Day, VE Exams, 2 meter and 10 meter nets, and many other Amateur Radio related activies. In addition, the Association operates three FM repeater system that covers all of Lake County, Ohio under the callsign K8BL.

    Each month we publish a newsletter called The Patch. This publication summarizes club business and contains columns from both members and nonmembers on subjects pertaining to the hobby.

    The Association meets on the first Wednesday of each month. The meeting location is usually announced on the repeater during the days prior to the meeting, and is also announced in The Patch. These meetings allow you to keep updated on club activities, meet new Hams, exchange information, and to get involved with the club’s direction and many other aspects of building, operating and maintaining your station.
