We meet on the first non-holiday Monday of the month, doors open at 7, call to order is at 7:30, in the basement of the First Congregational Church building, 36 Main Street, New Milford, CT. We'll have our portable radios tuned to both repeater frequencies for those wishing to call-in. Meetings generally last for up to 90 minutes, depending on the activity schedule for the month. Our meetings are open to all who are interested in amateur radio and we welcome new members at all of our formal and informal gatherings.
We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization incorporated in the state of Connecticut. Our mission is the growth and public service of amateur radio and the fellowship and community that amateur radio offers licensed operators, friends, and families across the United States and beyond.
