WELCOME TO THE SONARSHACK
First Timers, please click on the selections in the "About Us" drop down menu to find answers to questions about the mission, history, our memorial page along with a list of current officers and directors of the National Sonar Association.
The "Information" section contains several links including registration forms for our annual reunions. Other pages for you to explore include the first "Ping Jockey" newsletter, Number 1 (July 1982) as well as all the succeeding publications under the members only section.
Dues are $20 annually. A free trial membership will be granted to qualified individuals. If you decide to become an annual member you may pay dues at any time prior to the expiration of your trial membership.
The searchable "Deck Log" area has postings dating back to 1998. Search by name of poster, ship name, hull number or other information to obtain postings that might be of interest.
Our "Pictures" section has some great shots of all the fun we have had at our recent reunions. The most recent Sonar Reunion was held in Branson, MO in September 2014.
IMPORTANT! The "Members Area" requires a password for access. All membership applications are reviewed by the Association prior to granting access. Be patient, the process is not automatic. Once approved, you must request a temporary password by typing in the email address on your application. To do this, please click on "forgotten password". A one time temporary password will be emailed to your address. Using it will allow access to your unique member record. Once in your member record, please note that you will need to put in your own password. The password is known only to you. We don't keep passwords. If you lose your password, you'll need to use the "forgotten password" button.
The members area contains our membership directory and scanned and digital copies of our newsletters (in pdf format) dating back to 1982.
This website is devoted to maintaining the importance of the great Sonar Rating for all those who have served in the past, those serving now, and most of all for those who will serve in the future.
Take advantage of our Six Month FREE TRIAL membership offer.
