All Visitors are Always Welcome to club meetings!

Regular SARA business meetings are scheduled in advance
- we may have 'extra meetings' when desired with notification by email or posting.

 - meetings are on the 2nd Tuesday of each month @ 7:00PM (19:00)local.
- December is a 'special dinner meeting' with guests invited.

Covid-19 - Zoom Virtual Meetings is the new normal!

Covid-19 is still forces us to 'skip' physical meetings. We use Zoom Meetings (Web App) to hold our virtual/video meetings. See "Video Meeting Setup Hints" on the left side for information and links to setup information (will help get your Zoom operational). We are doing this for both the ARES-Skywarn meetings (6:00 PM on 'odd number' months) and the SARA regular meetings (7:00 PM each month except December) until further notice (from November, 2020). We plan to use the Zoom meeting process going forward {after Covid} to assist members to attend the meetings, without physically traveling to the club meeting location. We are continuing this into 2022 and will post here if direction changes.

Physical meetings will be planned to be at: TBD (when we can start back up ~ 'post COVID'). We have currently lost our meeting space, so we are looking for a location. We will post here when we figure it out.
VE testing, fourth Thursday of even numbered months, has it's own link/page (see item in header of each page), is now being held at the Perry VFW hall at 6:30 PM (paperwork) and 7:00 PM for testing.

All new and prospective hams, as well as the general public, are always invited to our meetings! Shiawassee Amateur Radio Association's [SARA] meetings are held monthly on the second Tuesday of the month at 7:00 PM, except the month of December. The December meeting is replaced by a dinner event with spouses/guests attending. COVID has impacted our schedule here, but we are looking for a normal schedule going forward. The December meeting has historically been held at a local restaurant which is decided just before the event. Watch this "Meetings page" for details.
