Welcome to the GSARA
The Garden State Amateur Radio Association, Inc. (GSARA) is a ham radio club dedicated to advance the art, science and enjoyment of amateur radio. We have a very diverse group with varied interests. Some of us are interested in operating, some like different modes of communicating and some like building, repairing and restoring radio gear or that special something for the ham shack. We meet twice a month to share a program, meet old and new friends, share our latest ham radio conquests or achievements or simply ask a question.
We welcome new members to our club and encourage their participation in club activities. Supporting the club entitles you to use the radio shack on Saturdays (it is usually open), operate the remote station in the clubhouse, have a vote on the direction of the club and participate in all club events and make face-to-face connections with other hams. You are also welcome to all the meetings (online on Zoom for the moment) and having input into the programs and events that club holds. It is the best $20 ($25 for family membership) you will ever spend! Everyone is always welcome to any meeting.
Field Day 2021 planning is in full swing. We will have a hybrid Field Day this year both in the field at Palaia Park and at home for those who do not want to be outside due to the pandemic or any other reason. We will aggregate our club scores again so that we can see how everyone in the club is doing. Be sure to plan the last full weekend of June for this wonderful event.
During the COVID pandemic, all meetings will be on ZOOM. Watch your email for details or ask Denis, K2NPT at firstname.lastname@example.org. When we are able, we will resume normal meetings. We invite you to become a member of the Jersey Shore’s most dynamic ham radio club.
