Use this web site to take a look at the ways we support Emergency Response and to review our planned Activities.  A historical chronicle of our many and varied activities are presented through pictures in our Photo Gallery.  If you wish to learn more about GBARC, contact GBARC for support or become a member please see the About Us page.   We conduct a monthly net for training and information purposes.   Every amateur radio operator is invited to join the WA1RJI VHF/UHF net.  A listing of this net and others within Connecticut will be found on our Nets Page.   Links to other web sites are found here.

Make a Plan Build a Kit Get Involved 3 days, 3 ways
In order to be fully responsive in an emergency or a disaster, we encourage GBARC members and their families to prepare themselves for surviving the initial days of an event on their own.  As a minimum we recommend that they make a plan, build a kit, and get involved in community support.  Even if you are not a GBARC member, it will be worth your while to take a few minutes to read about it here.
