Field Day Wrap-Up

Field Day 2022 was great time for everyone! Though there were some antenna coupling issues, we learned from it and will rehone our operations for next year. But we did tons of operating, made tons of contacts, had great food and the friendship flowed freely. It was a terrific weekend weatherwise, as well, which made everything even better.

The Propagator

Each month, the GSARA creates a magazine for its members and anyone else who wishes to know what is going on in the club. The Propagator has all the latest news, the club goings-on and other articles of interest. To access all of them, just use the drop downs at the top of the page.

Frequently Asked Questions

No. All you need is to be interested in amateur radio and you will be invited and encouraged to take part in all club activities. Of course, to operate in the shack, you will need a license if you are operating without a properly-licensed amateur in the shack with you.
You will be a part of a very active club that is friendly and welcoming. We have many events throughout the year including HamFests, Ham of the Year celebrations, an open shack for you to operate from, stimulating general meetings which always have an interesting program, professional business meetings, testing sessions for hams wanting to upgrade or get a new license, Field Day, equipment loaning program, Elmering program, and much more.
Yes! The members of the club have a wide variety of ham radio and technical expertise. Everyone is most enthusiastic to help you with your next project or explain something to you. We have many technical experts, to be sure. But we also have people who operate in the full spectrum on ham radio: digital modes, radio astronomy, Morse Code, single sideband phone, AM, amateur television, public service events, contesting, building their own equipment and using ham radio with computers. If you have an interest in something, the chances are pretty good someone can help you get started or be a sounding board for your own ideas.
