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 Amateur Radio club and we offer a wide range of Amateur Radio activities.

Our next meeting will be in-person at Wellspring Church, which is located at 1780 South Woodland Blvd., DeLand, FL on Dec.14, 2021 at 7:00 PM. 

Feel free to show up at 6:15 for Ham Radio Fellowship Hour!

More information about our monthly meetings and this month's meeting agenda can be found on our Monthly Meetings page.

A group of us meet on Saturday mornings at 8:30 to talk radio.  Currently we are meeting virtually here.

WestVARS currently operates two repeaters that are open for all licensed radio amateurs to use.  Click HERE to be taken to our repeater information page.

All amateur radio operators are invited to join one or all of the three weekly WestVARS radio nets held every Wednesday night.  We will expand our net structure to allow for discussions from both members and guests.
