Welcome to the web home of the Delaware Amateur Radio Association. We are made up of licensed amateur radio operators in and around Delaware County, Ohio. DELARA is an ARRL Special Service Club. We are involved in many community activities, including Field Day! Many of our members are also members of the Delaware County
A.R.E.S. (Amateur Radio Emergency Service) organization and as such take part in triathlons, parades, races and other events to serve Delaware County.
DELARA meets every third Wednesday of the month (See the Meetings page) and we hold an informal net every Monday evening at 8:00 PM on the W8SMK 145.17 repeater. This is a laid-back gathering of friends with stories and some tall tales to tell. If you have a ‘ham radio’ license, you are warmly invited to attend! If you don’t have an FCC Amateur Radio license, we can help you get one and take part in the fun!
