Welcome to the NEW BEARS Website & Blog!

It’s our great pleasure to debut the all-new, long-anticipated BEARS website & blog.

Our club secretary and webmaster, Brad Berson/W2ZZZ, has been at work on this project for months — and his hard work and creativity are evident.

You still access the site at www.w2abc.org (where you’ll start at a splash page featuring links to BEARS and other Disney ham clubs and affiliates). But once you’re on our site, you’ll find exciting new functionality:

  • Real-time links to our social media presence!
  • ONLINE membership applications!
    • …with ONLINE election nomination & voting to come soon!
  • A clean, easy-to-read BEARS activity calendar!
  • A list of helpful links!
  • Streamlined menus!
  • Mobile-friendly layout!
  • …and more to come!

To make sure you’re notified anytime we post new items to the site, please register using the SUBSCRIBE link on our homepage. Our new blog will allow us to keep you up to date on breaking BEARS news between monthly editions of our BEARFax e-letter.

Thanks, Brad for a job extremely well done!
