The West Central Ohio Amateur Radio Association, another one of the fantastic local clubs in the Kettering/SW Ohio area.
The Mound Amateur Radio Association (MARA) is an awesome local group who is sponsoring classes for the FCC Technician Class & Examination. They're gonna help you get your license.
