The Mission of our club is to recruit, train and help new and 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 Juneau, the community in which we live and serve. JARC is dedicated to community service and providing education to the general public about the history, operation, functions, and benefits of the Amateur Radio Service. JARC members adhere to the Amateur Radio creed and are considerate, loyal, progressive, friendly, balanced, and patriotic.
