About the Club

Welcome to the Antietam Radio Association, or ARA for short. It is our hope that you’ll enjoy your visit to our website and will return often. The Antietam Radio Association is located in Hagerstown Maryland, and services the Four State area.

The Antietam Radio Association is a general interest club, which supports all modes of operation, and provides strong support to RACES (Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service).

Meeting Information

The Antietam Radio Association holds its meetings on the first and third Tuesday of most months. The ARA does not hold an Activities Meeting (second meeting) in July, August, and depending on the calendar, December).

The activities meetings, which take place on the third Tuesday of each month, are usually preceded by an informal pre-meeting social for food and drink at the American Legion on Northern Ave in Hagerstown. Each member picks up his/her own tab.
