I am a member of W.A.R.A. Club. We are a non profit, serving Borough of Woodmont, Milford.Ct and surrounding communities. We are involved in all aspects of educating local communities on such topics as, getting licensed through the F.C.C. to operate an amateur radio. This is for "all" age groups and genders. This concept has been around for well over 100 years now, using all types of radio equipment and home brew or professional made antennas to speak to people both locally and throughout our country and the world. The good thing about this non profit is that you do not have to be a rocket scientist to join and understand what we do for the communities we assist. This club gives me the feeling of knowing that, as an example, if a minor/ major disaster were to occur, we are there on the front line doing whatever is required to bring a level of normality back to ourselves and our surrounding communities. I probably haven't even covered a small piece of what this club does. My suggestion would be to send me a text at vp@wara.club and setup a tour of our facility. Please remember, we are a non profit and any size donation to our cause would be greatly appreciated.
