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.
If you are a licensed radio amateur operator you are invited to join us order to help meet these goals. Come experience new and exciting activities while you have a chance to learn from others.
