Would you enjoy a hobby that will last a lifetime? A hobby that will expand your horizons and challenge your intellect, one that will help you build lasting friendships at home and even around the world? Are you looking for ways to become involved in worthwhile community service?


Amateur Radio is a challenging and rewarding high-tech hobby offering services to the community, life-long opportunities for learning, and the excitement of communication with other Amateur Radio operators around the world. Amateur Radio operators today can explore many different communications modes, including all the more familiar methods of voice, VoIP with computer, and Morse communications as well as more exotic techniques involving Amateur Radio television, earth-satellite, and moon bounce communications.

Cambria Radio Club is a general interest radio club with membership centered in Cambria County, the Club’s members also come from many other areas in and around Cambria, Blair, Indiana, Somerset, and Westmoreland counties. Unlicensed individuals are invited to join as associate members.

Club meetings will be held as listed on this web site.  Anyone with an interest in Amateur Radio is welcome to attend. We would like to work some form of radio communication at every meeting.  Ham toys welcome!

The Club’s community service activities include communications for local bike races and marathons along with some of our members having roles in ARES, (http://www.wpaares.org ) RACES / ACS and PEMA.

The WA3WGN Repeater serves Allegheny, Armstrong, Bedford, Butler, Blair, Cambria, Clarion, Clearfield, Indiana, Jefferson, Somerset, and Westmoreland counties. With 
Allstar Node 27245 the connection possibilities are almost unlimited.

For more information about the Cambria Radio Club, or about Amateur Radio in general, contact us via email at wa3wgn@gmail.com, or by USPS at 196 Barron Avenue Johnstown, PA 15906.
