The Rochester Amateur Radio Association, Inc. (RaRa) is a widely
diversified, highly active amateur radio club located in Rochester, NY. We were founded in 1931, and incorporated in September
of 1960. Currently, with over 500 active members, we are one of the largest Amateur Radio clubs in North America.
RaRa also excels in many other areas of amateur endeavor. Many RaRa members, in cooperation with ARES and RACES, provide reliable communications during disasters and other emergencies at the local and national level. Our extensive Public Service activities help build public awareness and goodwill towards Amateur Radio, provide needed communications to worthy charities and non-profit organizations, all while fostering and enhancing emergency communication preparedness.
For many years, RaRa has sponsored spring and fall licensing courses in the greater Rochester area. These courses cover all license classes and provide many opportunities to prepare for a license or upgrade.
Free license testing sessions are held monthly, September through April, by our dedicated RaRa Volunteer Examiner Team. These examination sessions are given for all levels and elements of licenses. The June testing session is held in conjunction with our annual Hamfest.
Meetings and Guest Speakers
RaRa meets regularly on the first Wednesday of every month; our meetings
are held at the Seneca Waterways Council, BSA HQ, 2320 Brighton Henrietta Town Line Rd, Rochester, NY 14623. Additional club gatherings
include our Rochester Hamfest, summer family picnic, fall banquet, and winter cabin party.
RaRa is the proud producer of the Rochester Hamfest. The Rochester Hamfest is a major club activity attracting international visitors from Canada and Europe.
Many RaRa members enjoy one or more special interests within amateur radio. We are very fortunate to have so many special interest clubs in the area to be associated with. These include:
The Antique Wireless Association
