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. Club members are also active with Cape & Islands ARES and Sandwich CERT.
