LATEST NEWS
  • The year has quickly passed and it is time to start assembling next year's calendar, plan the January picnic, and elect new club officers (we need a VP and a Treasurer!) Your input is important!

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

  • Bring back the weekly KB4CC net? - With the addition of Echolink to the W1KFR 70cm repeater and now the N6EMA 2m repeater, there has been ongoing discussion of reviving the weekly KB4CC net, but changing the date and time to 1930 Monday evenings. We would conclude our net by 2015, then connect to W1KFR to participate in KG4PXG's "Monday Night Fun Net" at 2020. Comments and suggestions are appreciated

  • We knew it was only a matter of time, but after many years of excellent service to the Camden County area, we sadly report that the tower company finally pulled the plug on the K4QHR 2M repeater (146.895 MHz). CCARS is very grateful to Pete K4QHR for all his years of hard work and dedication in keeping the repeater running for hams to use. He has said there is currently no word on when, or if, it will return.

  • Pictures now available!! The former WMOG AM 1490 Gates BC-1G 1KW AM transmitter was successfully rescued from scrapping on August 17th, much to the credit of Mel and his lovely wife Angela, without whom this project would have never happened. Of course, we had to move the 500lb monster on the hottest day of the year, but it is now safely stored in a climate controlled location until it can be relocated to a new home. Many thanks to Mel (WE8J), Angie (W8ANG), Ryan (KK4WIC), Scott (W4SGB) and Tim (AK4YW). Click here for the photos
