RARS Equipment Loan Program

The Raleigh Amateur Radio Society has procured equipment for the purpose of helping hams continue to learn about the RF spectrum, experiment with different modes (SSB, CW, digital, etc.), and try different operating styles (DXing, contesting, rag chewing, etc.). These stations are frequently used for Get On the Air (GOTA) stations at club functions, such as Field Day, the North Carolina QSO Party, the monthly Gathering, and at Portable Operating Group events. When not in use by the club, they are available to be loaned out to members on a monthly basis.

Please contact Brantley West K4CBW if you are interested in borrowing any equipment.
