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), 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. It is the best $20 ($25 for family membership) you will ever spend! Everyone is always welcome to any meeting.
Field Day 2020 is being planned and it promises to be even bigger and better than last year. Some things we are planning:
Field Day Sign-Up Sheet
We are getting a jump start on Field Day in June and the committee is working very hard to make this as successful as possible. Field Day is June 27-28 from 2 PM to 2 PM EST. We will need help setting up and tearing down, operators, volunteers, meet-and-greet, and so forth.
