Club Building Projects
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.
Important Field Day Information
The June 5 meeting for the GSARA was devoted to Field Day. Our club is putting together a Field Day that is sophisticated, well-organized and will be tons of fun. The presentation that Denis gave is on the right hand side column of this page. Scroll through it and familiarize yourself with our plans. If you have not signed up to operate, DO! The sign up sheet link is on the right hand side column as well. And we need people to help set up and tear down. We have 4 tents to install, antennas, tables, chairs, and all the radios and computers. Your help is vitally needed. We will begin setting up on Saturday at 6 AM at Palaia Park in Ocean Township from Lot 1 just north of Deal Road on Whalepond.
