The Giles Amateur Radio Association, Inc., was founded on 10 May 1992, an outgrowth of the Dismal Peak Repeater Society, Inc., which was incorporated on 9 February 1988. All hams are always welcome to visit this WebSite to find out more about amateur radio in our area.

DPARS members include W4VT, N4AZJ, KE4JYN, KQ4Q, KD4BNQ, and KD4QDM.
