On Thursday, May 19, 2022, the Radio Amateur Society of Norwich (RASON) and the Tri-City Amateur Radio Club both voted to disband and create a new club, the Southeastern Connecticut Amateur Radio Society, SECARS! These are exciting times! The new club will have significantly greater membership, and we will be taking the best of both clubs to strengthen the amateur radio community in Southeastern CT.
Among our activities are Field Day, fox hunts, communications support for local community events, emergency preparedness and support, regular presentations
that feature technical talks and discussions of operating practice, a summer picnic and auction fundraisers. To find out more and to join the club, please visit SECARS.org.
