  • It is with great sadness that we report the passing of another local ham. On Friday, September 18th Chuck Cooper N4TIS became a silent key. Chuck was a fixture of the local ham community for many years, a long time member of CCARS, and a mentor to many. He was also very active as a net controller for a number of HF nets. 73 Chuck, you will be missed. Until our next QSO on the other side...

  • Please note the monthly CCARS meeting for October will be an "Eating Meeting", Saturday, October 3rd 1800 at the Wee Pub South in St Marys. Bring the family and enjoy some great food.

  • CCARS' brand new Yaesu Fusion Repeater has arrived! The plan is to set it up under KB4CC for the 70cm band running both digital and analog, with Echolink access too. We are continuing to research suitable locations to install it.

  • Field Day 2015 was a success, even if Murphy decided we didn't need a digital station. The cabin location was quite comfortable, and we were able to get the tower trailer up and the tri-band beam in action for our 4A operation. Thanks to the dedication of all the operators who spent some time working the bands; Club President Glenn (W4ULB), Thurston (W6NY), Bill (KK4AVB), Club VP Mike (KK4SSH), Mike (KA7SQD) and visitors Eddie (KD4BWW) and Betty (KD4QIC) Oliver from Claxton, GA, we ended with a little over 1200 points. And special thanks to those who came out to help set up and tear down, especially George (N4QQZ) and Ron (KI4HEQ). Time to start preparing for next year!

  • The W1KFR 444.625 repeater is now DMR digital only. Bill has made the switch to 100% DMR Digital so analog operations and Echolink will no longer be available. The DMR network is rapidly growing in this area!

  • New repeater! New repeater! Well, actually it is an old repeater under new management. Located at 500 feet on the Sidney Lanier bridge in Brunswick, the former N4XGI repeater is now owned by Worth, KG4PXG. It does have a pretty good reach into Camden County, so try it out. The frequency is 145.330 with a negative shift and a tone of 131.8Hz. UPDATE: Worth has setup an Echolink link (Node #8346) on the "Bridge repeater" (145.330) to activate during nets. Echolink is also working again on the "Dover Bluff repeater" (146.685 MHz Node# 8345) making it is easy to link either one to N6EMA (147.195 MHz W4ULB-L Node# 269327) as needed!

  • N6EMA (147.195) has Echolink now. It is registered under W4ULB-L with a node number of 269327. The link is expected to stay active until the KB4CC Fusion repeater is in service

  • 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!
