Black River Radio Ops is an amateur radio club in Northern Ohio. It is named after the Black River, a tributary of Lake Erie that runs from Northern Ashtabula County and through Medina and Lorain Counties.
Our goal is to advance the art of and science of amateur radio through that footprint and other surrounding areas. Black River Radio Ops was founded by five operators who share common interests in contesting, DXing, and digital modes but wanted to spend more time “playing radio” and less time “playing club politics.” We’re focused on getting on the air, getting on HF, and having a good time while doing it without taking ourselves very seriously.

We hope that our efforts to further amateur radio will inspire potential new operators to become licensed or for other amateurs to become more active within the hobby. This is a large hobby with numerous opportunities and sub-interests: Disaster Preparedness / Relief, Emergency Communications, Contesting, Morse Code, Weak Signal Work, Digital Communications, DXing (chasing distant countries) and of course, plain old “ragchewing” or talking on the air to other amateurs. There’s something for anyone with an interest.
We look forward to seeing you on the air, in the logbook, or at an event!
