Our members do their best to make new members feel welcome. Don't feel an invitation is needed to stop on by. If you have just an interest in Amateur Radio, or you are a licensed amateur, stop on by and introduce yourself. If you feel you need an invitation, send the webmaster an email, and I will personally invite you.
The WARC was established to form camaraderie amongst fellow Amateur Radio enthusiasts serving the Greater Waterbury Area and its surrounding district. The objects and Bylaws of the club are published, and available to view and download here. The club is a vehicle for all to get together and further the interest of Amateur Radio through discussion, presentation, experimentation and training.
