May 16, 2020 marks WARA’s first anniversary and what a year this has been. We are celebrating our first anniversary throughout the month of May.
At the end of our first year we are celebrating:
- A membership of nearly 50 with people still showing interest in ham radio and WARA.
- A new repeater network consisting of 3 repeaters
- Near islandwide VHF/UHF repeater coverage
- Repeaters linked to Echolink and IRLP
- A Winlink net
- Winlink RMS gateway
- Dominica’s first and only ONLINE amateur radio training school
In this moment of celebration, we look back at our challenges and shortcomings and we face the upcoming year with new hope and vigour as we strive to change the face of amateur radio in Dominica.
