On November 14, 2018, the American Legion Post 113 Amateur Radio Club (call sign N7LGN) held its first meeting. The new Executive Committee is: President — Matt Wrobel, W7LGN, Vice President — Jack Youngs, KJ7AFB, Secretary/Treasurer — Walt Thornton, and Membership Chairman —Thom Juul, WA7JUL. The club station Trustee is Rich Dees, W7BOI.

Regular monthly meetings are slated to be held on the fourth Wednesday of each month beginning at 1900 on January 23, 2019 in the Veterans Memorial Building, 22 W. Broadway, Meridian.

The Post 113 Net had its first check-in event on November 29th. Quite a few members and non-members checked in.  Overall, it was a great success. The Club Net will be held weekly on Thursday evenings at 1900. Rx  146.940, Tx 146.340, PL 100. Thank you Rich, W7BOI for hosting. Many thanks to ISRA for making this possible by letting us use their repeater.


All interested Legion Family members (Post, SAL, Auxiliary) who either have an FCC license, or are interested in obtaining an FCC license are welcome. You do not need do be a member of Post 113. We encourage youth to become members of the club. It’s easy, fun, educational, and provides a vital service to the community.


Classes for the Technician, General, and Extra class licenses are held periodically. You must pass a thirty-five question multiple choice test to earn your license. However, all exam questions and answers are reviewed during the classes, so there are no surprises when taking the exam. Learning Morse Code is no longer a requirement.
