Our purpose should serve the Castle Shannon Volunteer Fire Department by giving emergency communication support in the event of an all natural or man-made disaster, in the eventuality of general public protection communications failure, or even for some other unplanned emergencies calling for back-up or help communications. Also the club will more the trade of data and cooperation between users, improve understanding, fraternalism, and individual operating effectiveness, and conduct programs and activities to advance the overall interest and benefit of Amateur Radio.
