SCARA is active in various events throughout the year. Helping as a public service with communications at various events has been a strong point for our club. We have worked some of these events in conjunction with other radio clubs.
Field day is a big event for us. Over the years, it has provided the opportunity for experienced members ("Elmers") to pass on knowledge and operating expertise to those new in the hobby. Horizons have been opened as new modes and methods are explored. The old and the new blend together. Whatever your interests are, or your experience level is, there is a place for you at Field Day. Give it a try next year. All are welcome.
Our club has been active during the National and International Amateur Radio Lighthouse-Lightship Weekends in August. Using our club call-sign (K2BR), we have operated from the Absecon Lighthouse in Atlantic City, New Jersey, putting it "on the air" for the first time in 40 years! Click here for more information about ARLHS (Amateur Radio Lighthouse Society).
To sum things up, Public Service and promoting Amateur Radio is what our club has been doing for a long time. Along the way, many fond memories have been created. Hopefully, some of these memories will be revisited on the pages of this website.
