Mo-Kan Council of Amateur Radio Clubs has been dissolved. Founded in the 1970s, it’s purpose was to exchange information between clubs, their activities, as well as any general information of interest to the local amateur community. This was well before internet and list servers. The active clubs in KC sent reps. to meetings and the weekly 2 meter net.  W0AFQ and K0IEW were among the founding members.

South East Kansas ARC is now an ARRL affiliated club.                                        Officers are: President Joe WØMQY; Vice President Jack Dock WDØCFH Secretary/Treasurer Loren Chancey KDØRTXThey meet the last Saturday at Hardees in Pittsburg.
