Parity Act

Urge the U.S. Senate to Support the Amateur Radio Parity Act - S 1534


   The Lake County Amateur Radio Association (LCARA) is an organization of FCC licensed Amateur Radio Operators and is affiliated with the ARRL as a Special Services Club. Our goal is education and fostering the advancement of the Amateur Radio hobby through mentoring (Elmers) and regular VE licensing exams. We are headquartered at the Lake County History Center where we maintain a fully functional radio room including a display of many ham related artifacts.

   The Association operates three FM repeater systems that cover all of Lake County, Ohio under the call-sign K8BL.

ARRL Grid Chase

The ARRL International Grid Chase
Get ready to kick off 2018 with a new year-long operating event!


Get in the Chase

The objective of the ARRL International Grid Chase is simple: Work stations in as many grid squares as possible and upload your log data to ARRL's Logbook of The World. If you are not currently registered with Logbook of The World, this is a good reason to get started.
