C.I.S.A.R. (Centro Italiano di Sperimentazione (ed) Attività Radiantistiche) means for Italian Center of Experimentation (and) Radio Activities;
it is a founder member of EURAO and represents a large group of Italian radio amateurs and radio listeners,
who have made technique and experimentation their strong point.
The C.I.S.A.R. was founded in Rome on November 13, 1981,
by a group of Roman radio amateurs:
the aim was to carry out some experiments in the VHF bands and above,
through the experimentation of a series of repeater bridges connected to each other.
The Constitutive Statute itself mentions the aim of "bringing together the radio amateurs concerned
to transceivers in general and in particular on high frequencies (VHF, UHF, SHF),
promoting any legitimate social activity of education and professional, cultural, recreational experimentation", and also proposes to "install and manage, within the limits and at
conditions set by regulatory provisions, radio repeater links,
and the connection between them in national backbones";
but, alongside this, there was, and continues to be, the firm intention of "promoting the cooperation of radio amateurs
and protect the interests of the Members as regards the specific activity of radio amateurs".
