New England Amateur Radio has started to raise money in support of building out an amateur radio communications van. NEAR has received a donation of a Wolf Coach E350 TV truck including generator and mast.
Once outfitted, the vehicle will be available for use as a communications center in support of public service events, emergency operations, education, and outreach.
To donate or to learn more about the vehicle please visit our NEAR Communications Van page.
NEAR has received its 501(c)3 status letter from the IRS which makes us an official federally recognized non-profit!
A new non-profit company, New England Amateur Radio Inc., incorporated today. Its goals are to promote education in amateur radio and to encourage STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math) activities through amateur radio as well as emergency preparedness.
