Description:

Falmouth Amateur Radio Association (FARA) was founded in 1931 as the Falmouth Radio Club. FARA was incorporated as the Falmouth Amateur Radio Association, Inc. in 1953 as a 501c(3) non-profit, Massachusetts corporation. FARA is an ARRL affiliated organization and an ARRL Special Services Club. The primary purposes are to operate a non-profit corporation for educational and scientific purposes as follows:

* To educate and increase the proficiency of its members in the science of radio communications.
* To provide for dissemination of information among its members concerning scientific advancement and progress in the field of radio communication.
* To organize and train units of licensed radio amateurs capable of maintaining radio communications as a public service during periods of emergency.
* To encourage and sponsor experimental activities in radio communications and electronics, and to the end that skills and experience gained in amateur radio will further the application of electronics at large.
* To promote the elevation of standards of practice and ethics in the conduct of amateur radio communications.

FARA is the largest amateur radio group on Cape Cod. For the past 85+ years, we have served the public, working with the Falmouth Police Department, the Falmouth Fire and Rescue Department and Falmouth Hospital to demonstrate and provide emergency radio communications.
