The Golden Empire Amateur Radio Society (GEARS) was established on August 13, 1939, by eleven Amateur Radio operators from throughout the Northern Sacramento Valley.
GEARS members are interested in many aspects of amateur radio, HF, VHF, UHF, and other modes. We endeavor to represent all interests and minimize the influence of any one special interest.
We are a non-profit organization whose purpose is to further the exchange of information and cooperation among members, to promote radio knowledge, and to advance the general interest of amateur radio service. We are committed to serving our communities, and welcome new opportunities to do so. We are available to–and frequently–provide radio communication support for community activities such as: bike races, charity walks, and other local and regional public events.
