The St. Cloud Amateur Radio Club fulfills the needs and goodwill of the general public in the field of communications in time of natural disasters, such as in tornadoes, floods, earthquakes, and at the time of any other emergency that may occur. We also help with various events around the area providing radio support and manpower. Being a Ham is an incredibly fun and rewarding hobby.

The three teams will be setting up various Radio Communication stations so that the Scouts can get an idea of what Ham Radio is all about.
