We take pride in our recently renovated, multi-acre modern club station atop “Wireless Hill,” adjacent to the Mercer County Airport, which includes HF, VHF, and UHF capabilities for DXing, contesting, education, message handling, and other activities.
The primary HF position has an Icom 7600, Tokyo HyPower Solid State HL-1.5KFX Linear Amplifier, and LDG AT1000Pro2 antenna tuner. The secondary HF position is a full Icom station using an IC-756 Pro 2 with matching IC-2KL 500 watt linear amplifier and IC-AT500 antenna tuner. A third operating position is primarily dedicated to VHF, UHF, and C4FM digital but can also operate HF using a Kenwood TS-2000. A lounge/conference area and a well-equipped workshop complete the facility.
Our main HF Antennas are a 2 element Yagi for 40 meters (Force 12 Magnum 240N), and an 14 element 20, 15, and 10 meter (Force 12 C-31XR) multi monoband Yagi turned by an M2 OR2800 rotator atop our primary 100 foot tower. Our secondary 50 foot tower has a Cushcraft A3S triband beam and various VHF/UHF antennas. A SteppIR Vertical covers 40-6 Meters. Dipoles for 80 and 160 meters are strung between the towers and various supports.

The DVRA club radio station is immediately adjacent to I-295 Exit 75 (old Exit 2) at Mercer County Airport in Ewing Township. Head south on Rte 579 and immediately turn east into the short road marked NJ Dept of Transportation before you get to the airport entrance. If lost, just look for all the radio antennas across the street from the Ewing Water Tower!
When using a GPS, enter “798 Bear Tavern Road, Ewing NJ” and look for the driveway with the sign “NJ Department of Transportation West Trenton Maintentance Yard”. The DVRA club station is beneath all of the antenna towers on the north side of that driveway.
