Our Partners

Our partners mean a lot to us, as we do to them.  Without their support and help, the West River Radio Club would not be where we are today.  We have partnered together to provide Windham County, Vermont, and the surrounding areas, with Volunteer Support, Communications, and Emergency Services.

Please take a moment to visit our partners site, it is well worth the click!!

We would like to thank Grace Cottage Hospital, located in Townshend, VT, for allowing the West River Radio Club the use of their meeting room and also allowing us to partner with them in providing Emergency Communications for Windham County and the surrounding areas.
