LATEST NEWS

  • At our last monthly meeting, it was decided not to have Tech Sessions during November & December due to potential conflict with familiy activites during the Holiday Season. We sometimes need to remind ourselves that our passion for radio is still a hobby and celebrations with family must always take precedence. If any club-only related activities become scheduled, an email will be sent to all. (11/06/22)

  • We are currently working on a secure section for our Club Website where members can view 'Members Only' information such as Monthly Meeting Minutes, Committee Reports, etc. We will send an email to all club members with access information once this area is up and running. (11/06/22)

  • Interested in WinLink? This powerpoint primer, provided by KX1EMA provides the basics to get up and running with the hottest email system going for amateur radio operators. Follow the link to get started: WinLink Basics . Thanks to our VP & Director Marion Wall [K4DO] for this submission. (11/06/22)

  • Have you ever wondered 'Where are other operators near me located'? Simply follow this link: Operators Near Me and enter your call sign when prompted. A map of your locale and the operators nearby will be displayed! Thanks to past club member Ron Knauss [KI4HEQ] for this submission. (11/06/22)

  • QRZ New ham Jump Start Program! One of our active members (KK4ECL) provided this scroll of knowledge for our use. If anyone knows of a newly-licensed (or even musty-licensed) operator who is having a difficult time getting on the air, please forward this link to them: QRZ New Ham Jumpstart Program (09/13/22)

  • HamCation (Orlando, FL) is only 6-months away! Discussion of a Club 'Sales & Information' table was borught up during our last meeting. As a Club member, if you are interested in supporting a Club-table at the 2nd-largest Ham Festival in the U-S-of-A, please let your officers know! If you want to be there, start planning now! (8/29/22)

  • CCARS continues to work closely with the County EMA to refurbish the ARES communications room and antenna tower at the EOC. K1JHH, who has been coordinating the effort, is looking for other operators to become certified as EOC radio operators and assist with staffing the station during events.

  • Georgia ARES (GA-ARES) has been working for a number of years to provide DStar coverage over most of the state. K1JHH will continue to work with the Region J (Coastal Georgia) Hospital Coalition and with W1KFR towards the installation of the VHF/UHF D-Star Repeater. All system components & feedline have been delivered and are awaiting installation. Stay tuned for updates!.

  • Continuing with DStar news, Now that DStar Auxcomm stations for both Brunswick and Kingsland campuses of SGHS are on the air, they need experienced operators to run the weekly D-Star check in on Thursday mornings. Camden ARES is looking towards training for hospital staff and other volunteers as primary station operators but your help is needed now until these folks can be recruited & trained. Please contact Raymond, K1JHH if you are interested in assisting with this effort. (6/23/22)

  • This area of the state is in much need of VHF or UHF Winlink EMail gateways!!. If you look at a map of available stations, Coastal Georgia is empty! They are easier to set up that you might think. Go to www.winlink.org for more information

  • Check out the CCARS Buy-Sell-Swap Forum where local hams can offer gear for sale & trade, or just find stuff you need. Registration and listings are free. Use the link in the menu to the left or click here: CCARS Tailgate
