PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES 

The Citrus Belt Amateur Radio Club is now offering free membership to people who have disabilities which effectively prevent them from participating in amateur radio activities.

The Citrus Belt Amateur Radio Club Board of Directors will evaluate each request for membership and assistance as requested in order to provide such assistance in an appropriate and timely manner. All people interested in amateur radio are welcome at all club activities regardless of age, race, gender, ability, or any other factor.

A written letter must be submitted to the Board with the explanation of the persons disability, needs etc. Once the Board reviews the letter, they will contact the applicant for either more information or approval/disapproval of membership.
