Westerly Amateur Radio Team

The Westerly Amateur Radio Team is associated with Westerly Emergency Management and the Rhode Island Amateur Radio Emergency Services (ARES).  ARES consists of licensed amateurs who have voluntarily registered their qualifications and equipment for communications duty in public service when disaster strikes. Every licensed amateur, regardless of membership in the Amateur Radio Relay League (ARRL), or any other local or national organization, is eligible for membership in the Westerly Amateur Radio Team. We also welcome non-hams who are interested in obtaining an amateur radio license or have a sincere desire to serve their community. The possession of emergency-powered equipment is desirable, but is not a requirement for membership. 

The Westerly Amateur Radio Team provides auxiliary communications support to Westerly Emergency Management and also provides communications assistance for various public service events in the local community.  The team can also assist individuals and groups in obtaining their amateur radio license by providing training and testing.

The Westerly Amateur Radio Team meets on the 4th Wednesday of the month at the Westerly Police Station, 60 Airport Rd. at 1800 (6:00 PM)
