GEARS was founded more than 75 years ago, before video, computers, satellites, internet, or cell phones. Hams have been on the front lines of this revolution all along, and we’re just getting started. The future of wireless technology has never been brighter.
GEARS is not just all about learning and volunteering though, sometimes we just kick back and have a little fun with a variety of excursions, friendly contests, BBQs, Radio Direction-Finding “Foxhunts”, Field Day, and social gatherings. Membership in GEARS is open to anyone with an interest in Amateur radio, with or without a ham radio license.
