Welcome to Our New Page!
SARA is one of the premier clubs in the North Georgia area. Presently, we have over fifty active members. The club and its members are actively involved in many different amateur radio activities. Some members enjoy just rag-chewing or operating CW, SSB, VHF SSB, or QRP. Others enjoy chasing DX, or working satellites, or building equipment and antenna systems.
The club's main emphasis is to assist local communities with special events and their communications needs. We also like to promote the public awareness of the ARRL Field Day event held every June. SARA has been honored with two national “First Place” finishes in our class, during past Field Day events. We also are always actively welcoming and reaching out to youth to help continue this amazing hobby with the upcoming generations!
If you are just starting out in amateur radio, we invite you to one of our upcoming events or meetings. Let us introduce you to our hobby while you visit one of the best clubs in the area.
Our speaker this month is Dave Slotter – W3DJS talking about his collection of Ham software tools called Hampi. It is a Raspberry Pi computer image file that has over 100 amateur radio applications installed, including apps for running digital modes, antenna modeling apps, logging apps, morse code apps, and software-defined radio apps.
As always we meet on the second Monday of the month, Mar. 8th, at 6:30 PM.
Due to pandemic, meetings will be held via zoom.
