Welcome to the Woodchuck Amateur Radio Club Website
The Woodchuck Amateur Radio Club is based in Parma, Ohio.
We are an Amateur Radio organization with training and monthly presentation.
Why the Woodchucks?
Every club has a distinctive character. Our Logo kind of gives you an idea of ours.
The Woodchuck Amateur Radio Club was formed by a small group of amateurs many years ago. Evidently they felt they would be more comfortable among themselves as they were all new to amateur radio. The club has advanced beyond that stage but we try to maintain that atmosphere.
