Amateur radio has been part of the landscape in Socorro since the 1930’s. By the mid-1970’s, informal meetings of members and their families were occurring and SARA made the transition to a formal association on May 1, 1976. Although participation in the association has ebbed and flowed since, SARA has remained a vital element of both the amateur radio and Socorro communities since its formation. Although a smaller southwest community, Socorro is very high tech. The ARRL featured Socorro and SARA in the QST article, "Socorro, New Mexico — Ham City, USA? (QST, December 1996, pp. 43-45)," an article by Dave Finley (N1IRZ) that highlighted the area’s high per capita interest in amateur radio. New Mexico Tech is a high quality, Socorro-based university offering bachelors degrees through doctorates in science, mathematics and engineering disciplines. The NSF-funded National Radio Astronomy Observatory is located on the NMT campus and coordinates activities of the Very Large Array and Very Large Baseline Array. Employees from diverse research endeavors ranging from the geophysics to defense make Socorro and SARA home. Learn more about the Socorro Amateur Radio Association at https://www.socorroara.org/
