HPT's Mission

To provide the City of Hampton, VA and its citizens free emergency radio communications, emergency support, and community event radio assistance. Hampton's Public-service Team is a group of FCC licensed Amateur Radio operators who volunteer their skills, equipment, and time to assist the City of Hampton, the Southern Virginia Peninsula, and the Commonwealth of Virginia via radio communications.

Who Are We

That's simple. HPT is a group of Amateur Radio operators who live in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia that contribute their time, equipment, and communications experience to the common welfare of their fellow citizens. Often this is done by providing backup radio communications capabilities to the city during times of need. Additionally, we help park cars and usher parades. If you want to learn more about "Who We Are" you can read more about that here.

Becoming Part of the Team

That sounds interesting, huh? You're right, it is. It's also challenging, and helps build personal skills too. Any Amateur Operator can be part of our team. We're always looking for help. Don't worry, you don't have to be on the front lines to be part of the team. There are other ways to contribute. If you're interested you can learn about the ways you can help by clicking here.
