West Palm Beach Amateur Radio Group, Inc

The West Palm Beach Amateur Radio Group, Inc (WPBARG) is an ARRL affiliated club with specialties in Contesting, Digital Modes, DX, General Interest, Public Service/Emergency, HF and VHF/UHF. We have been recognized by the ARRL as a Special Service Club for our community service work. The club has a permanent Amateur Radio Exhibit and station, WS4FSC, at the South Florida Science Center & Aquarium.

General meetings are held on the 4th Wednesday every month at 7:00 PM Local Time. Meetings are open to everyone and we are known as the friendliest club in the area.

We provide entry level Technician license classes, General license classes and the Extra license classes. These are complete classes spread over many weeks and not just memorization or cram type sessions. We offer a number of additional classes including Morse Code, Basic Electronics, Hands On Radio, D-Star, Antenna Building and more. The WPBARG offers ARRL VE license testing multiple times per year. The WPBARG sponsors many activities like Field Day, 2 picnics each year, weekly breakfast, radio raffles, field trips and sponsors the Worked All Palm Beach Contest. We have over 140 members from across Palm Beach County. Many of our club members are involved with the Science Museum, ARES/RACES, Skywarn, MARS and CERT programs.

Since the early 1930s the West Palm Beach Amateur Radio Group has been a community supported and nationally recognized radio club, not only for it's fine radio skills and teachings, but for its dedication to the community of West Palm Beach, Palm Beach County and the entire Amateur Radio community. We are proud to be an ARRL Special Service Club.

In 2013 our club was awarded the prestigious "Club of the Year Award" at the Dayton Hamvention. This is an international award with clubs from around the world being considered. For more information visit: This article from Southgate Amateur Radio News

We are a general interest group. We have members interested in just about everything: rag chewing, contests, home brew and kit-building, antennas, digital modes, emergency communication, DXing, social time, community service, and other areas. We are extremely proud of our club radio station located at the South Florida Science Center & Aquarium. Since opening in late 2010, thousands of youngsters have spoken "on the air" to HAMS worldwide (and many have gone on to become licensed Hams).
