The St. Kitts Nevis Amateur Radio Society was founded on April 12th 1973 . This Society has remained committed to regional development and and integration since its inception. A few years ago, the Society, under President Al Elmes Esq. developed a Disaster and Emergency Operations SOP [Standard Operating Procedures] document, that is still fine tuned annually. Today that document is part of the training manual for regional emergency and disaster operations and management workshops. It is also the template of choice for many independent SOPs.Amateur Ham Radio Operators exist in almost every country and in most they form Clubs, Societies or Associations, with their their National organizational body joining the IARU. See these organizations on the IARU Member Society list
