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.
GSARA Hamfest – September 25
We are planning for the revived (sorta-post-COVID) GSARA Hamfest and we need people to help set up, sell, organize, direct parking, etc. We will be advertising the Hamfest but we want to begin organizing our end in earnest. You can sign up here for a volunteer position. Please help make this Hamfest the best ever.
We have a slew of new members at the GSARA. Did you know we have a page of member pictures so we can identify each other when we see each other? If you have not yet sent your picture for the club website and wish to, simply send a picture with your callsign and it will be put up on the members’ picture page. Send your picture and callsign to Cy, K2CYS at email@example.com.
