Introduction

The Pacific Amateur Radio Guild, as its name implies, is an association of Radio Amateurs with a common interest whose principle activities are localized primarily in the Western regions of the United States and Canada.
The aims of PARGuild are:

(a) To maintain a communications network, staffed with competent and skilled CW Operators, through organized nets and inter-member contacts, which could be available in emergency situations;

(b) To promote and encourage fellowship between Pacific Coast and Western Region Amateurs;

(c) To continue the cordial social relationship enjoyed by the membership, existing over the past few decades;

(d) To encourage, by example the wider use of only power levels necessary to effect reliable communications, thereby reducing QRM in the Amateur Bands.
