We are a group of men and women who have a uniting interest in Amateur Radio.  (What is Amateur Radio?)   Our club is friendly, engaging and meets regularly.  We have an active station at the American Red Cross Building in Tinton Falls and the club station is open to all members usually every Saturday for several hours.  The club hosts the W2GSA repeater (147.045 + with a PL of 67.0) and it is an open repeater.  You are welcome to use it.

Throughout the year, the GSARA has many events including, but not limited to:

  • Field Day
  • Autumn HamFest
  • Lighthouse Weekend Participation
  • Bike-a-thon Participation
  • Monthly Meetings
  • Monthly Online Coffee Klatch Informal Meetings
  • Club Build Events
  • Member of the Year Awards Lunch

Mark your calendars for June 22-23, 2024, for ARRL Field Day!  We have a lot of new club members this year who have not yet experienced the temporary insanity, I mean fun!, of Field Day.

Planning starts months prior to the event.  As such we put together a “committee” of people to head each task.  Just to be clear- this is just the team lead for each task.  On Field Day weekend, we need a lot more people for each job, so in May we sign people up to be on each team.  Right now, I just want to fill the leadership roles for each team.  (Some are already filled):

  • General Admin- Marlo, KA2IRQ and Ed, NN2D
  • Warehouse and Transportation
  • Antennas/Towers – Mike, N2MN
  • Tents
  • Power
  • Stations – Paul, AD7I
  • Computers – Art, N2AJO
  • Hospitality
  • Safety – Marlo, KA2IRQ and Ed, NN2D
  • VE – Jay, W2FLK
  • Bonus Points – Joe, WA2JOE
  • Training – Marlo, KA2IRQ
  • Accounting – Diana, KD2NAD

We will have several meetings at the Red Cross prior to Field Day, so you should be able to attend those (usually on a Saturday).If you’re interested in leading a team, send me an email and I’ll get you signed up.  In the event of multiple people for the same job, I’ll pick one for now but make sure the two of you get together.
