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 licensing test sessions 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 start at 7:00 PM.  Show up early at 6:30 for some fellowship with your fellow Amateur Radio operators.
