BCRT Gear Store

The Beaverton CERT Radio Team is proud to present the BCRT Gear Store, where you can order logo shirts, mugs, jackets, hats and mouse pads. We're putting this up to promote team identity and some of the items even have frequency charts so they're practical in multiple ways! All items can be customized with your call sign which is a really nifty personal touch too. 10% of the purchase price goes to support the Beaverton CERT Radio Team (defraying coffee and doughnuts at our meetings!).
