Who We Are
The membership of the Port Saint Lucie Amateur Radio Association (PSLARA) is comprised of licensed amateur radio operators and persons interested in the “ham” radio hobby. We are an official affiliated club of the American Radio Relay League (ARRL).
PSLARA’s purpose is to promote Amateur Radio as a hobby. Accordingly, the goals of PSLARA are to further the exchange of information and cooperation among members, to promote radio knowledge, fraternalism, and individual operating efficiency. We also aim to conduct club meetings, programs and activities in a manner that advances the general interest and welfare of Amateur Radio. The Association is also dedicated to providing emergency communications as a public service in the event of a local or national emergency.
The monthly meetings of the PSLARA are held the fourth Wednesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. The meeting location is St. Andrew Lutheran Church, 295 NE Prima Vista Blvd. in Port Saint Lucie. The church is located one block west of the intersection of Prima Vista Blvd. and Airoso Blvd. The meeting is open to all persons who are interested in ham radio.
The PSLARA operates two repeaters: The 2-meter repeater is at 146.955 MHz, while the 70-cm repeater is at 443.650 MHz. The PL tone for both repeaters is 107.2 Hz. Our weekly Ragchew, Traders and Tech Net is held on both repeaters each Thursday at 7:30 p.m. All licensed amateur radio operators are encouraged to participate in this open net.
Our many programs include four major social events a year, VE amateur radio license testing, licensing classes, and many other activities. For further information on our amateur radio licensing testing sessions, please click here.
