Club Improvements

Lockport Amateur Radio Association  has a Long and Bright History in Niagara County

But No Organization can "Stand Still" in Time ,
Improvements & Upgrades along with New Ideas, Must Always Be Done 
to Keep it  Moving Forward & Up to Date with the current needs of the community 

If it fails to stay current it will wither and fade away.

To Grow the Capabilities of Our Association
to Better Service and Interact with the Community

Our 1st Improvement  was a NEW Repeater

○ ▬ ○ ○  ○ ▬  ○ ▬ ○  ○ ▬

Our Hamfest  which has been at 
The South Lockport Fire Company Hall
 for many year required to be Moved,
Due to the Need for  More Parking and More Vendor Area

We chose The Cambria Fire Company on Rt. 425
which has the largest vendor area we could find
and 100's of Parking spots.

Although L.A.R.A had met many places over the years 

We Sadly had to change from our long time home 
at Mt. Olive Lutheran Church on Rt. 31 in Lockport  
as it could no longer service our needs 
Due to our expanding membershi
and Accessibility needs of our aging members

So We moved to The Warrens Corners Methodist Church
Rt. 104 
also in Lockport

As our association has no "club house" of it's own,
To expand our presence and operability,
we are working with the  Cambria Fire Company 


We Requested to Place a 2 meter Antenna
Emergency / Training antenna on their Hall Roof

As Cambria Fire is a designated Emergency Center
(like most Fire Companies) 

This Addition will allow Amateur Radio Operators 
the ability to operate communications, via base stations
Off of their Fire Company Generators 
And be in a Heated Location near 
to local Emergency Services. 

If or when there is an emergency, 
this will add to Associations ability to 
Help All with in range of our repeater.
