WA3NAN is the call sign of the Goddard Amateur Radio Club (GARC) at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC), located in Greenbelt, Maryland, USA, 20771.  Greenbelt is just outside the Washington, D.C. Beltway, about 8 miles northeast of downtown Washington, D.C.

The Club was founded in 1969 during the Apollo (moon mission) era by Goddard civil servants.  Later, membership was opened to family members and contractor personnel who support GSFC operations, as it is today.

For many years GARC member volunteers provided retransmission of Space Shuttle air-to-ground communications on multiple HF and VHF frequencies; allowing hams around the world to keep informed in real-time about space exploration and developments.

Recently the Club station was moved to a new location, called Area 100.  New facilities including four 50-foot antenna poles were made available at the new site and are now in service with beam antennas.  We currently can operate on all HF bands and VHF/UHF.  We are in the process of erecting a new VHF/UHF satellite station with tracking antennas. 

The club is now active in ARRL Field Day and other contests.

The Club operates under the Goddard Employees Welfare Assn. (GEWA) under the same rules as clubs on military bases.

The trustee of the Club call sign is Hugh, W3FUO, who is an Extra Class ham, licensed since 1957.

The Club's mailing address is Hugh's home address as listed in QRZ.

We are currently on QRZ.com and are getting set up on LOTW and TQSL. Look for us on the air
(both SSB and CW).
