"Mission Statement”

The Mission of the VERO BEACH AMATEUR RADIO CLUB (VBARC) is to recruit, train and ​help committed HAM Radio operators carry on the tradition of amateur radio by using our network of technical resources, and ​expertise to provide equipment, skilled ​operators and emergency services when ​called upon by local authorities in time of ​need to assist and protect the citizens in ​the communities in which we live and serve.

VBARC members adhere to the Amateur ​Radio creed, and are considerate, loyal, progressive, friendly, balanced and ​patriotic. We are proud to provide a service to our citizens, and to that end we have been designated by ARRL as a Special Service Club. This is a club that exists to go above and beyond for their communities, and for Amateur Radio is what defines a Special Service Club (SSC). They are the leaders in their Amateur Radio communities who provide active training classes, publicity programs and actively pursue technical projects and operating activities.
