- Our Purpose

from the Weld Amateur Radio Society Constitution

  • To enhance the value of the Amateur Radio service to the public as a valuable, non-commercial communications service, particularly with respect to providing emergency communications, where possible.

  • To promote fellowship in Amateur Radio through diligent efforts to adhere to Federal Communications Commission rules and regulations within the bounds of good taste, and law of the land.

  • To provide for a self-supporting and self-perpetuating bond of common purpose among its membership.

  • To promote activities of an unspecified nature to the membership not necessarily limited to amateur radio but not detracting from the aforementioned purposes.
