Amateur Radio Fans Ham It Up in Lewes:

Posted: 14 Apr 2012 05:10 PM PDT

LEWES -- Since 2004, the Lewes Amateur Radio Society has been embracing and
promoting short-wave communication in the Lewes community and beyond. What
was a five-member group of local amateur radio operators at its inception
has expanded to 41. The group meets over the airwaves on a weekly basis
when there's no in-person meeting scheduled. Amateur radio operators are
licensed by the federal government and are given codes to identify
themselves. "It's a very diverse group and they're a hoot to be with,"
member Mike McClanahan said, adding that the members, while mostly retired,
have been involved in numerous industries. McClanahan, or W3RMM, has had
his license since the mid-1950s and is still amazed by it. "It's the awe of
being able to converse with people around the world without picking up the
phone or spending a lot of money," he said. "It's a neat hobby. It's just
fun, it really is."
