PARA Mission Statement
Adopted November 1992
PARA is a non-profit association organized to provide technical expertize to the local community through public awareness for the Amateur Radio hobby. Additionally, PARA will help provide a background of information for the non-technical person who is interested in becoming an amateur radio operator, and providing a reservoir of knowledge and experience represented within the membership of PARA. This extends to help all interested people, especially non-licensed amateurs who show interest in starting out this in this life-long hobby for self-enjoyment and personal advancement.
PARA will help provide any additional communication for the Philipsburg area through contact with any of its’ officers, when asked by any official community agency (fire, police, etc.) for the protection of life and property.
