To visit our Sponsors
GCARA is one of the oldest ham radio clubs in South Florida and
celebrating its 50th year in operation. In 1969, it was founded by its
first Trustee, Charles D Ritchie (Chuck) W4BUG,SK , when amateur
radio, VHF,UHF,HF repeaters were more of a technical challenge.
[See Repeater Tab for our club frequencies]
To say the hobby has come a long way is an understatement. People
no longer join for a phone patch. They want to talk to the astronauts,
bounce signals off the moon, use their computers to slow scan TV or
do digital communications. Even though CW (Morse Code) is no
longer required at testing for licensure, people still learn and use it
Our mission is to join collectively as hams and mentor the younger
population or newer hams to the hobby. We fill critical communication
needs during disasters and hurricanes throughout the county. We
provide communications for events like the Winter Boat Parade and
Race events we are invited to. Hopefully we can continue to foster a love for this
ever changing hobby that will allow it to continue throughout future
generations. Come join us today!
