We are an ARRL Affiliated Club with a primary goal to expose our members to the many aspects of Amateur Radio through numerous field events, meeting presentations and training opportunities.

Whether your just now considering Amateur Radio, recently introduced or a tenured veteran to the hobby, we welcome your membership to the Jupiter Lighthouse Radio Group! Our meetings are held the second Friday of the month at PBC Fire Station #18, located at 777 N US 1, Jupiter, FL (map.)

EMERGENCY!    DISASTER!   TERRORISM!
COMMUNICATIONS?

The Jupiter Lighthouse Radio Group (JLRG) firmly believes in and supports the capability of the Amateur Radio operator in times of emergency response. There's considerably more to it than grabbing your HT and checking in on the local repeater. If you're needed in a disaster stricken area, do you have the necessary equipment? How will you integrate into the overall response? What communication services are you able to provide?

JLRG will be conducting EmComm training on a regular cadence to ensure it's members and any interested local Amateur Radio Operators are trained, practiced and ready to deploy.

Visit the JLRG EmComm page for more information.
