Shreveport Amateur Radio Association
Pictured is Tim Hall, K5TFH, repairing the antenna of a fellow ham radio operator, Carl McNair,KB5WMY. Assisting Tim, is Jim Prothro, N5IOO, Ron Stroope, W5RGS and Ralph Alves, N5AHR. Helping fellow club members is not the only assistance that amateur radio operators provide. In Shreveport, SARA members provide communication support for the Heart of Hope Bike Race, Gemini Mardi Gras Parade and Boy Scouts of America Jamboree on the Air (JOTA). Nationally things turn more serious such as desperately needed communications as a result of the flooding in South Louisiana. Ham radio operators provide this assistance at absolutely no cost to those the service is provided, hence the name amateur radio operator. SARA members are involved in all forms of communication, from legendary Morse code to cutting edge digital modes to ham radio satellites. The SARA club’s call sign is K5SAR.
