LATEST NEWS

  • Welcome to the Camden County Amateur Radio Society (CCARS).
    Please take a few minutes and explore our website. Here you will find information about our club and other pages loaded with 'radio-active' information. Feel free to reach out to one of our club officers, listed on our Equipment Swap page, if you have any questions regarding club membership.

  • For returning members annual dues are now being collected . Membership benefits include email updates for all club activities and access to our Members Only area. If you have not remitted your dues for 2024, please do so as soon as possible! (02/04/24)

  • Our License Exams Page now provides a link to an online study and testing system that a number of our Club VEs assist with. Check it out ! (11/20/23)

  • Local Repeater Updates: In case you missed it; there is another new repeater in town! K4QHR has installed another 70cm machine in Kingsland! Frequency is 443.0625 (+5)/(127.3). See our 'Local Repeaters" page for further information. Also, KB4CC, the Club's Yaesu DR-1X Fusion Repeater, continues to operate with both Analog & C4FM System Fusion capabilities. The system is set for Auto-mode on both receive & transmit (analog in - analog out, digital in - digital out). Analog output PL is still 118.8 if you do not wish to hear digital traffic. There is no special code needed to access the digital mode. (11/04/23)

  • Georgia ARES (GA-ARES) has been working for a number of years to provide DStar coverage over most of the state. K1JHH & W1KFR continue to work with the Region J (Coastal Georgia) Hospital Coalition towards the installation of the VHF/UHF D-Star Repeater. The antenna & feed line are now in place! We are now in the process of programming the computer that will allow Gateway access. Stay tuned for updates!. (03/16/23)

  • Refurbishment of the Camden County ARES station KN4AFG is almost complete. K1JHH continues to work closely with the County EMA and is looking for others to become certified as EOC radio operators to assist with staffing the station during events. Remember, you do not have to be a member of any club to participate in ARES activities!

  • This area of the state is still 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
