SOARA Saturday was started to give our newer members and guests a less formal meeting upon which they can meet up with experienced club members to learn new skills or be introduced to new things in Amateur Radio.

Sometimes SOARA Saturdays will have a topic of discussion, although if you have a specific topic or question you would like to ask, feel free to come and ask!

SOARA Saturday is open to the public and there is no fee to attend. Donuts and coffee are typically provided by SOARA.
