Welcome to the GSARA Website

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 $15 you will ever spend! Everyone is always welcome to any meeting.
