CMARA - A Brief History

Essentially, the archive initiated by myself and researched by Field and Education Services confirms that there were three successive and integrally linked clubs serving amateur radio in Worcester.

The first, founded in the early 1930's was the Central Massachusetts Radio Assoc., formally affiliated with ARRL on March 13, 1935.

It endured through the Depression and World War II, and by 1948, five of of its members (the "Magnificent Five"), along with new generation members, formed the Hilltopper A. R. A., and continued the ARRL affiliation. By 1953, the club had grown and was reformulated and incorporated as Central Massachusetts Amateur Radio Association.

The ARRL affiliation has continued and ARRL Representatives conferred a plaque honoring the 65th year of ARRL Affiliation of CMARA's three phases at a celebration on March 23, 2000, (CMARA 65th Affiliation Celebration) featuring presentations on the archives.

Sincerely and 73,

Carolyn, N1SKM President 2000-2002
Dave, AE1DG President 2003-2004
Scott, KB1EZF President 2005-2014
Bob, KB1VUA President 2015-Present
