Who we are and what we do

The Greater Bridgeport Amateur Radio Club (GBARC) is an ARRL affiliated club whose mission is to support the City of Bridgeport during times of emergency and non-emergency by providing training and technical expertise. We seek to further the exchange of information and cooperation between members and non-members, to promote radio knowledge, fraternalism and individual operating efficiency; and to conduct club programs and activities as to advance the general interest and advancement of amateur radio and ham radio operators in our communities.
