About Us

The Fort Venango Mike & Key Club is an Amateur Radio club located in the Oil City-Franklin area of Venango County in Pennsylvania, although some of our members live as far as Leeper and Brookville in Forest and Clarion County, respectively. Our club callsign is W3ZIC – Whiskey Three Zulu India Charlie.

We provide fun and fellowship for our fellow Amateur Radio operators in the area, communications for public events, and emergency communications in the event of natural disaster. The latter two are at no cost as per Federal Communications Commission law.

We regularly provide communications for the Marienville Fire Department’s “Tour De Forest” offroad ATV race, held twice a year – once in the spring and once in the fall.
