REDLANDS - The executive board of American Legion Post 106 recently approved the constitution of the post's Amateur Radio Club.

The club is seeking accreditation from the American Radio Relay League.

The primary purpose of the club is to provide communications in the event of natural disasters or other emergencies by working with other entities of Post 106 and relief providers in the area.

Another purpose is to foster education and training among members with respect to electronic communication and emergency preparedness.

Membership is open to all members in good standing of Post 106 and its affiliated organizations, the Sons of The American Legion and the American Legion Auxiliary.

Club meetings will take place the first Thursday of the month before American Legion membership meetings.

American Legion Post 106 is at 814 W. Colton Ave.
