Findlay Radio Club Overview: The Findlay Radio Club, established in 1925, has a rich history of supporting amateur radio operators. The club began its annual Hamfest in 1942, which continues to be a significant event for radio enthusiasts to buy, sell, and swap equipment. The club's facilities on Totten Avenue in Findlay include a meeting room, a radio room equipped with various radios, and an extensive antenna farm for optimal radio communication. The club also operates two repeaters and participates in the ARRL's Field Day each year.
