Warminster Amateur Radio ClubInc.
Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania) is a general purpose
amateur radio club and
its over 135 members are involved in all aspects of amateur
radio. We make a special effort to participate in providing
communications support for public service events, teaching
classes for those who wish to obtain an amateur radio license
or upgrade their license privileges and serving as Volunteer
Examiners as part of the ARRL VEC program. The club was
founded in 1964 and has been designated an ARRL Special
Service Club since 1984.
It is with a heavy heart that I need to announce the passing of Dave Simpson WI3Y, who became a Silent Key this morning. As many of you are aware, Dave had been fighting ALS for the last year or so, but remained active on our weekly 2m net until recently (thanks to the wonderful efforts of Bill K3ZMA). Dave is also the namesake, and inaugural recipient, of our newly created Outstanding Ham of the Year award, which was presented to him in October.
In addition to being a proficient CW operator, Dave also took part in many Field Day activities with WARC, as well as helping Mark AA3K with his efforts as a test station for WRTC 2014. In addition to his ham radio adventures, Dave was also an accomplished musician, published playwright, and writer; a true Renaissance man.
Dave's wife Emily was at his side, today as always. Please keep them in your thoughts at this time. Dave will be sorely missed, but his legacy will endure. May he rest in Peace.
Due to the upcoming closing of the Warminster Recreation and Education Center (WREC) WARC has changed the night and location of our monthly VE sessions. Starting in October 2012 , the VE sessions will be held on the last Monday of every month except August, and will be held in the Wilson Senior Community Center 580 Delmont Avenue Warminster, PA 18974.

2 Meter Radios Available on Loan (club members only)
The Warminster Amateur Radio Club has purchased four Vertex Standard
2-meter HT’s that are available for use by members of the club.
Each unit is equipped with an alkaline battery pack (you
supply the six AA cells), a “rubber ducky” antenna, a cigarette lighter
power cord, and the instruction book. Needless to say, the WARC repeater
is programmed into the memory, but you can use them on any other 2 meter
repeater or simplex frequency. Each unit can deliver up to 5 watts output.
The HT’s are available on a month-by-month basis and have been
purchased primarily to help new hams get on the air. However, they may
also be used by any club member who is in need of temporary 2-meter radio.
They are also available for use by participants in WARC’s public
service activities. The only requirements are that you must be a licensed
ham and a member of Warminster Amateur Radio Club.
If you would like to borrow one of the VX-150’s, contact Rich Luce, AG3L at email@example.com or
