Welcome to W8DC.ORG, the Web home of the Grand Rapids Amateur Radio Association.  

We meet at the Red Cross Building at 1050 Fuller SE, and we maintain an active club station at that location.  If you'd like to see our station, or attend a club meeting, please stop by and visit.  All Visitors are welcome! 


You can stop by the Red Cross the first Friday of every month for our club business and technical meeting.  OR - Every Wednesday night is open radio room night. If you want to see a REAL amateur radio station being operated, want to talk over a technical problem, or find out more about Amateur Radio testing and licensing stop by!

  Check-Out the

GRARA Yahoo Group


What is the GRARA Yahoo Group, you ask? It's a bulletin board specifically made to keep members and friends up to date on club activities, treasures for sale, questions and comments on a daily basis. You can keep track of "what's happening" in any of three ways.


The first way is to go to the yahoo site by clicking the link above. If you join the free group, you will also be able to select getting an email every time someone posts a message, once a day in a digest or only if a moderator sends out a special message. (Most members get a single daily digest, some choose not get any email at all.)  You can also return to the site and search for whatever "tickles your fancy."
