What is a wiki?

wiki (/ˈwɪki/ (About this soundlistenWIK-ee) is a knowledge base website on which users collaboratively modify content and structure directly from the web browser. In a typical wiki, text is written using a simplified markup language and often edited with the help of a rich-text editor. - source

Over the last few years several members of the Orchard City Amateur Radio Club have put a great amount of effort into documenting our project, club policies and resources on our club wiki. Anyone in the world is welcome to access, browse and learn from our wiki and we invite any club member who would like to contribute to do so. If you do not have a wiki account you can reach out to and we will get you setup.

Others enjoy talking to people across the country and around the globe, participating in contests and building experiments.
