Club Meetings

PCARS meets the 2nd Monday of each month. All are welcome. We meet at a full-service restaurant, so many people come early (around 6pm) for dinner and conversation before the meeting, and to catch up with friends. We keep the business end of things to a minimum, so we can concentrate on ham radio FUN!

Meetings begin 7pm SHARP

Meeting Location

PCARS Club Site

We have what we think is one of the finest club sites in Ohio (or the rest of the country). You can find it at 705 Oakwood St, in Ravenna.  We’ll admit that the site isn’t the easiest to find, so hopefully these pictures and map will help.


Club Flyer

Ever wished you had something to give a fellow ham to tell them about PCARS? Well, here, for your immediate use is a flier (put together by Parky, KB8UUZ).Please print it out and use it freely!PCARS Flier

Amateur Radio Licensing

If you would like to be an Amateur Radio Operator, you’ll need a license from the Federal Communications Commission. The PCARS Volunteer Examiner team conducts regular license testing on the first Saturday of each even numbered month. Check the VE Sessions Page for the next session.

You can study on your own for the licensing test, or attend our Ham Radio Licensing Classes. Check the PCARS event Calendar for the next class session.


QSL Manager
