Welcome to SBARA!

South Bay Amateur Radio Association (SBARA), was formed in 1976 to cater to the amateur radio communities in the Fremont, Newark and Union City in the East Bay. 

The club welcomes people of all ages interested in Amateur Radio and helps them become licenced operators to enjoy the hobby first hand.

The club conducts regular monthly meetings, and invites a guest speaker to give a talk and discuss interesting projects. 

The club enjoys helping children get to know all about radio sport. The club can work with local schools to setup after school activities relating to this hobby.  Every year SBARA participates in the ARRL Field Day, inviting everyone young and old to join in the fun.

Club members also help local public events like the Primavera Bicycle Ride, The Hayward Zucchini Festival, and other city events, county fairs etc., by providing strategic communication to event organisers, at no cost. This has in turn helped our members develop expertise in event communication that would be invaluable for communication during emergencies. Club members work in coordination with the Fire and Police departments in the tri-cities area and are proud to be able to respond when necessary.

Let us help you discover and enjoy the Radio Sport !
