Revised December 15th 2014



Of 37 replies to the original CRC Christmas Social announcement we received replies from 4 people or couples who were planning to attend.

The rest of the replies stated they could not attend and had other family plans or commitments on the 19th. Completely understandable..

A few other replies stated they were making a donation to the Cambria Radio Club. Thank you in advance for any and all donations....


It is the decision of the CRC leadership to CANCEL the CRC December 19th Christmas Social and encourage all of you to attend the December 18th Christmas Dinner of our Sister Club, The Horseshoe Amateur Radio Club.

The HARC is a great club and has been very helpful in the many shared events between our clubs....


Cambria Radio Club Members,

The Horseshoe Amateur Radio Club is holding our annual Christmas Dinner at Prime Sirloin Buffet Restaurant in Duncansville on the 3rd Thursday in December, at 6:00 PM.

Please accept this invitation to join us, and share a memorable evening with friends!

Directions: Exit from Rt. 22 East bound onto Rt. 764 North (6th Avenue / Altoona), this is a double clover leaf. Travel north ¼ mile.

After ¼ mile, turn left onto Municipal Drive. (No Stop Required)

After traveling ½ mile, you will pass under I-99 (double raised overpass). Travel an additional ½ mile, the Prime Sirloin will be on your right side.

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.
