The Green Mountain Wireless Society was founded in
December of 1980 by a small group of Amateur Radio Operators in Rutland
County, Vermont. The club was formed as a
general interest radio club, while several members also began building a
repeater to cover the local valley.
GMWS publishes a monthly newsletter, Key
Klicks. The club has operated Field Day and some special events such as the
Coolidge Memorial from Plymouth
Park, Walk America, Boy Scout Jamboree on the Air, as well as RACES and ARES events. The GMWS has
sponsored Novice/Tech courses and regular VE sessions. The GMWS is an ARRL (American
Radio Relay League) affiliated club, and has been designated as a special
service club: a club that makes significant contributions to amateur radio, and
also serves the Rutland area community at large.

range, club members support the W1GMW repeater (147.045 -/+ 600) on Boardman
