LATEST NEWS
  • BREAKING NEWS: The monthly meeting place for CCARS has changed. Due to consolidation of county First Responder assets, our long time meeting place at the Gross Road firehouse is no longer available. We have made arrangements with the Camden County Library to use the conference room, but until all the details can be worked out, the March meeting will be moved to Saturday 3/7 and be change to an eating meeting. April's meeting should be held at the library on Gross Road.

  • Congratulations to our returning officers, Glenn W4ULB as President and Bill KK4AVB as Secretary, and to our newest officer, Mike KK4SSH, as Vice President. Welcome Mike! And thanks to Mike KA7SQD for volunteering to be the club PIO. Time to start preparing for Field Day 2015!

  • Sales at the 2015 Orlando HamCation were very good! KK4AVB, W4ULB, and W6NY worked all weekend to sell off donated and personal items, as well as items from the estate of Frank AK4LN. We were able to put some change in the bank for CCARS and were able to send a nice check to Frank's longtime partner, Peggy. We are already planning to set up a table next year. Donations of parts and equipment are always welcome!

  • Field Day 2015 Some discussion was had of combining teams from Glynn County and Camden County for this field day, but a final location has still not been determined. With the success of the sales table at Orlando, a suggestion was made to have the club pay for two nights in a cabin at Crooked River State Park. Feedback is welcome.

  • N6EMA (147.195) now has Echolink! It is registered under W4ULB-L with a node number of 269327.

  • Weekly KB4CC net? - The date and time have changed to 1930 Monday evenings, with the first net held January 19th 2015. The net will conclude by 2015, then connect via Echolink to W1KFR to participate in the KG4PXG "Monday Night Fun Net" at 2020. Comments and suggestions for net content are appreciated. Join us next Monday!

  • As previously reported, the former WMOG AM 1490 Gates BC-1G 1KW AM transmitter was successfully rescued from scrapping on August 17th and is currently in storage awaiting a proper home. CCARS has just received notification from the American Victory Amateur Radio Club in Tampa, FL that they are interested in aquiring the transmitter to place it on the Marine MF CW band as part of a coastal station. [UPDATE] - The AVARC have notified us that they have located a different transmitter more suitable for their project. The Gates BC-1G will continue to wait for a good home.
