LCARA History:

The Lake Cumberland Amateur Radio Association (LCARA) was
organized June 29, 1974, with 29 charter members.  By-laws were
accepted by the ARRL and the ARRL Charter was issued September 28,
1974 with a 100% ARRL Membership Certificate issued.  LCARA is open  
to all person in the area who hold a Amateur Radio Licenses.  The first
President was  WA4JQS  Tony DePrato.

In its early years they held a Ham Fest, offered Code and Theory Classes,
published a club news letter, held Field Day exercises.  Several of the
charter members are now Silent Keys and are greatly missed.

Forty four years later LCARA is still a strong club with 40 members and
counting.  The current President is  AC4DM  Donald Munsey.  We still
hold the same values and principles.  Our goal is to promote Amateur
Radio.  To work with our state and local agencies to promote better
communications and Amateur Radio to all mankind.

LCARA supports and maintains a 2 meter repeater 146.880 with a
77 Hz tone, the call sign is N4LCA, also provide Echo link & IRLP.
We hold monthly meetings, host several nets, repeater workdays, VE
testing.  Check out this website  Our Annual Fish Fry,
Christmas Dinner are tops.  Every Wednesday we Hams met at the DQ
on South US 27 in Somerset, KY for breakfast.

We have provided communications and participated in several 5K
Fun Runs, "Runs/Walks" and table top exerciser's in conjunction with
the Lake Cumberland District Health Dept. (LCDHD), state wide
exerciser's with the Kentucky National Guard, JOTA Scouts events and
the 100th Anniversary of Scouting in America.  US Adventure Race
Association Races, Mount Victory Bike Races.  We have participated in
several Field Day exerciser's and attended numerous Ham Fest over the
years.  LCARA has held classes at the Lake Cumberland District Health
Dept (LCDHD), Somerset Nursing & Rehab and the Wayne County
Hospital for their employee's interested in Amateur Radio.
We have helped set up Amateur Radio Stations at the LCDHD, Lake
Cumberland Regional Hospital (LCRH), Somerset Nursing & Rehab,

The LCARA web site is chocked full of information about Amateur
Radio and the club take a look you will like what you see.  73's
