Hey, all you HAMs --
We really appreciate all of the enthusiasm to finally get the ZSARC and make it a reality. Please remember, though, clubs like this have to follow many of the same rules as chapters. While the requirements to have real world events don't apply, the standard rules regarding behavior do. Also, like chapters, official events would have to be approved by the Chapter admin staff (part of ZS HQ). A ZS ARC would also be required to follow current and future guidelines regarding member confidentiality, discussions of religion and politics, and openness to the public.
That being said, we think this could be a great way to encourage more people to get involved with HAM radio and a useful tool for members during an emergency.
Amateur radio operators are not accountable to you for how they conduct themselves on the air.
Amateur radio operators answer ONLY to the FCC, usually by way of their section's Official Observers / Official Observer Coordinator.
You have no power here.
