A 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, SJMARA was founded by Amateur Radio operators and friends of Steve Jacobson. Steve was a lifelong Amateur Radio operator who died on 9/11 while operating the transmitter for WPIX WB11 on the 110th floor of the World Trade Center.
The mission of the Steve Jacobson Memorial Amateur Radio Association Inc. (SJMARA) is to provide educational resources to schools, camps and other groups in an effort to promote Amateur Radio and the radio art.
  Camp Radio Program  
SJMARA's premier activity is an annual educational radio program at Camp Ramah in Wingdale New York. SJMARA supplies staff and equipment for a complete Amateur Radio program and an in-house camp educational radio station servicing 800 campers and staff.
  Norman Thomas High School  
The SJMARA supplied shortwave equipment, computers and educational material in support of a new Amateur radio club at the Norman Thomas High School in NYC. The club serves as an after-school program for this inner city High School of over three thousand students in mid-town Manhattan. Special emphasis is placed on serving the disabled population in the school and one wheel-chair bound special needs student received his Amateur Radio license.
  Norm Wesler Ham Radio Station for Space Science Education  
Through the efforts of the Steve Jacobson Memorial Amateur Radio Association and the generosity of Etta Wesler W2ETA, the New York City Center for Space Science Education has an operating Amateur radio station on premises. The equipment for the station was donated by Etta in memory of her late husband Norm K2YEW. Norm was an avid Amateur Radio operator and taught radio electronics to hundreds of students through the years; Etta generously donated the proceeds of Norm’s station for educational purposes to enhance the facilities available to New York City public school students.
