VALDOSTA AMATEUR RADIO SOCIETY

Our Mission…

Our mission is to promote the advancement of the sciences and high technology within our community and the South Georgia and North Florida region with a particular focus on technologies utilizing wireless signals.

Welcome…

We are an organization located in the City of Valdosta in Lowndes County, GA and have been serving the amateur radio community since the late 1920’s.   We were first chartered with the American Radio Relay League (ARRL)  on February 20, 1947.  We began our repeater services for the amateur community in the early 1970’s.

We are a group of amateur radio operators from all walks-of-life, and have many different radio specialties. You are quite likely to find an operator interested in “rag chewing”, digital communications, DX’ing, contesting, rig building, QRP’ing, DX’peditions, teaching new hams, VE’ing, as well as many other radio disciplines.

We make ourselves available to the community through local organizations including the Valdosta-Lowndes Parks and Recreation Authority, Lowndes County Emergency Management, the Red Cross, Salvation Army and any other public or government organization in need of volunteer emergency communications not readily available elsewhere.

We would like to invite you to look around our website. If you are interested in becoming a member of our organization or to show your support please contact us.

We look forward to hearing you on the airwaves, as well as seeing you at one of our scheduled events!
