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. 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), have a vote on the direction of the club and participate in all club events and make face-to-face connections with other hams. It is the best $20 you will ever spend! Everyone is always welcome to any meeting.

The Shack is Open!

Dyou know that as a member of GSARA you can come in on Saturdays and use the shack, find that missing resistor you need, and generally share some ham radio time with some friends?  Every week, an email is sent to the club members with a time that the shack will be open.  Take advantage of it.  Shack open times are 10-1.

Swap and Shop

We have something new and very exciting.  If you go to this link, you can find things that other club members are selling or looking to buy.  Simply fill out the online spreadsheet to let everyone know what you need or what you have and, when you make a match, email the other person and off you go.  Or, as we used to say in Canada....'Bob's your brother.'  And I have no idea what that means!
