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. If you are not a GBARC member and need any information about joining, training or making donations, or for general comments concerning our website please contact us at and we will respond as soon as possible.
