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.
Congratulations Matt, N2UG

If you are interested in getting your ham license, watch this page with GSARA updates into times and place. The pandemic has really thrown a wrench into the schedule and practicality of holding sessions either inside or outside (until at least the Spring). However, we may be able to help out if an opportunity becomes available. In the meantime, please know that the FCC now requires an e-mail address.
We are offering this free page for club members and other hams to swap, borrow, buy and sell equipment. Feel free to use it at will. If you go to this link, you can find things that other club members are selling or looking to buy.
