A Note From Your Director
Welcome to the SERA Web Page and the section for Wild Wonderful West Virginia. I am assisted by Richard Dillon, K8VE, our West Virginia Vice-Director, who lives in Buckhannon. Richard assists me with the day to day matters of West Virginia interest, with focus on the northern part of our state. Both of us are available to answer any questions or help you with any matter that involves FM repeater operation, regardless of where you live. We both travel West Virginia extensively, so we are both knowledgeable of the geography of the state and know which repeaters are on the air and those that are not.
Working with Richard, both of us will handle coordination matters in West Virginia as shown on the map below. As a friendly advisory and like most of the country, the "two-meter" spectrum is all but locked up. We encourage all repeater applicants to consider construction in 50 MHz, 222 MHz, 440 MHz, 902 MHz and above.
Serving as your Director since 2004, I live in Beckley and also serve as SERA Secretary/Treasurer & Internet Manager. I have been a member of the SERA since September 25, 1985, and joined the staff of the SERA on January 04, 1992, as the West Virginia Vice Director additionally assuming the post of Secretary on January 08, 1994.
Feel free to contact me or Richard by telephone, e-mail, or by radio, with any questions or concerns. In the spirit of enjoyment and enhancement of Amateur Radio, thank you in advance for your cooperation and the recognition & adherence to the SERA Coordination Policy & Guidelines.
