What is VTARA?
The Virginia Tech Amateur Radio Association is a student-run organization dedicated to advancing the amateur radio hobby in the Virginia Tech community. VTARA provides field communications, emergency communications, education, and volunteer testing services to the local community.
The principal members of VTARA are current students at Virginia Tech. An undergraduate serves as the President, with any current student performing the offices of Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Maintenance Officer.
Because VTARA is a student organization at Virginia Tech, the rights and privileges of its members are largely determined by their student, faculty, and staff status at Virginia Tech.
