Northern Chautauqua Amateur Radio Club

In the summer of 2013, the Club built an amateur radio station in the Dunkirk Salvation Army Building. The station was made possible largely through a grant from the Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation. The club greatly appreciates the support of the Foundation and the Salvation Army in bringing this asset to the Northern Chautauqua area.

"W2SB Station" operates on HF, VHF, and UHF, using all modes, including digital. Security cases house the radios, power supplies, and cooling fans. Backup power is supplied by batteries and a  generator.

The station also houses our home-brewed "Go-Box". The Box containes a VHF/UHF transceiver, battery, chargers, and switches. Along with its mobile antenna, the Box permits operation in the field on the internal battery or external 120VAC or 12VDC power sources.
