Amateur Radio Saves Lives !! Amateur Radio is active saving lives and reconnecting families in Peurto Rico, US Virgin Islands and numerous other countries in the Caribbean. Locally we support our communities through public service events, public education classes and giving back to our communities. Our motto is Serving Others Before Self.

Come out and learn more about amateur radio. Learn about what this great program has to offer the citizens of Audubon. I encourage all residents to get involved and support the Audubon Amateur Radio Club in any way you can. This is an invaluable service, offered right here in our town. Everyone is invited to attend as all of our meetings are open to the public. Bring a friend. Because of increasing memebership we are meeting in the Audubon Senior/Community Center 247 Oakland Ave Audubon NJ 08106 right next door to our club building.
