LATEST NEWS
  • ATTENTION: Until further notice, CCARS is suspending our monthly meeting schedule. Since far more people show up for breakfast every Saturday at IHop, a vote was taken and all agreed to make that our meetings. We will continue to schedule quarterly Eating Meetings on Saturday nights, and License Testing sessions by appointment. Please check here often for new announcements.

  • The Kingsland VHF 147.195 repeater is currently running on reduced power due to an issue with noise on the output. It is still useable, just with reduced range. Until it can be repaired, try using the K4QHR 146.895 (-offset 127.3Hz PL)

  • The Camden County Tower Project is moving along nicely! The Waverly tower is done, which means our new DStar repeater is closer than ever to being a reality! Also, the Browntown location has been completed, so this means the 147.195 will soon be off the air in preparation for repair and its move to it's new home at 250'

  • Call sign change: CCARS has completed working with the South Eastern Repeater Association (SERA) to re-coordinate the call sign for the 147.195 repeater. It now officially KB4CC, but the repeater won't be reprogrammed until it is taken off line to be moved. The W4ULB ID often heard is the Echolink node connected to the repeater. Sometime in the future, this node will return to its former home at the EOC and the call sign will be changed to match the repeater.

  • Packet radio is making a comeback!. Packet nodes are popping up all over the country, primarily for EMCOMM uses, but open to all. This means we need more Packet Gateways and Digipeaters. If you have not yet read about the custom $40 TNC made especially for use with the Raspberry Pi computer, (aptly named the TNC-Pi), check it out here then join in the fun! The TNC-Pi can also be used to build an APRS tracker and a portable WINLINK node

  • Speaking of Winlink Nodes, we are in much need of VHF or UHF Winlink Express (RF Email) gateways in this area of the state. 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

  • The 2019 CLUB ACTIVITY & HAMFEST CALENDAR has been posted - If you have an event you would like to see listed, let us know. Check out the 2019 Event Calendar for a complete listing

  • Do you operate a Personal Weather Station (PWS)?. Is the data uploaded to the internet, like those on Weather Underground? Add it to the growing list of PWS on the Echolink Georgia Conference (EGC) website!

  • LINKS PAGE The page lists links to dozens of calculators, antenna analysis software, parts and equipment dealers, reference sources, and tons of other radio & electronics related stuff. It even has a dedicated page of links to radio related apps for your Android smart phone. Check it out here: ANDROID APPS
