About Us

The West Central Florida Group, Inc. is a non-profit Amateur Radio organization. The organization was founded in 2001 with a mission statement reading “To promote and advance the art, science and visibility of Amateur Radio and provide necessary Amateur Radio communications infrastructure during communications emergencies”. Keeping with this spirit, we operate West Central Florida’s only regional coverage linked amateur radio repeater system, NI4CE. The network operates five analog repeaters from four sites linked 24 hours a day. The group also operates numerous APRS digipeaters as well as a NXDN digital repeater on the NXDN World-Wide Network. The Board of Directors is elected by active contributing members, and is entrusted with the responsibility of operating and maintaining the NI4CE Repeater System and the organization’s other programs.
