Team Contacts

Working in VECTOR: members join teams to serve each other and our communities while learning more about amateur radio, disaster response, and emergency preparedness.

Every member can serve any team

A team of “average” people working together will outperform a single brilliant person working alone.

Members with limited radio experience bring deep experience in other areas to our teams. We intend to learn from each other as much get tasks done. Only then can we become more effective at serving our community.
