Local Club Meetings

Connecticut Rhode Island (CTRI) Contest Group


CTRI is made up of active, enthusiastic hams whose love of contesting, DXing and socializing. As active contesters, they regularly appear at the top of the local and medium club category listings for various ARRL and CQ contests. CTRI is a “no dues” club. The dues you pay are the help you provide to other members, the scores you contribute, and the events you take part in! So whether you’re new to amateur radio or an experienced contester, we’d love to have you on our team. Drop us a note to wa1rr@cox.net or visit our web site at www.ctri.club
