WestVARS Annual Swapmeet – Held each April in DeLand, FL

Welcome to WestVARS!

The West Volusia Amateur Radio Society (WestVARS) was founded in 1982 and has been continuously active since then.  We are an ARRL affiliated club and we offer a wide range of Amateur Radio activities, as well as VE testing every other month.

Our monthly meetings are held on the fourth Tuesday of each month at the DeLand Elks Lodge at 614 South Alabama Avenue, DeLand, Florida 32720.  The meeting location is directly across the street from the Earl Brown Skate and Bike Park.  Meetings are typically held in the lower level of the building and they start at 7:00 PM.  Show up early at 6:30 for some fellowship with your fellow Amateur Radio operators.

WestVARS holds three weekly radio nets every Wednesday night.  

  • 2 Meter Net – 147.315 (+600 kHz No Tone) WV4ARS Repeater
    Begins at 8:00 PM
  • 10 Meter USB Simplex Net - 28.315 USB
    Begins right after the 2 Meter net (usually around 8:15 PM)
  • 6 Meter FM Simplex Net 52.040 MHz
    Begins at 8:45 PM

WestVARS also holds a weekly ragchew net on Tuesday nights at 8:00 PM on the 147.315 (+600 kHz No Tone) WV4ARS Repeater.  All licensed Amateur Radio Operators are welcome to join in.
