In Search Of Amateur Radio Excellence



EPARA has served the amateur radio community in the Pocono Mountains for over 25 years.
We have been an ARRL affiliated club since 1995.   We offer opportunities for learning and the advancement of skills in the radio art for hams and non hams alike.   EPARA supports Monroe County ARES/RACES in their mission of providing emergency communications for served agencies in Monroe County.   Feel free to join us at one of our meetings or operating events during the year.
