LATEST NEWS

  • CCARS would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

  • Click the link and check out what is going on with Amateur Radio in Camden County! ARES/AuxComm Meeting 2022

  • The Camden County EMA VHF 147.195 repeater (KB4CC), located at the Camden County Public Safety Tower in the Woodbine Government Complex has recently resumed full operations and the machine sounds better than ever, thanks to the dedication of our County Public Service Radio Administrator (W1KFR) . The repeater will remain connected to the Echolink Georgia Conference via remote node located at the County EOC. If the node is disconnected for an extended period or temporarily changed, an announcement will be made. Also, please do not attempt to connect directly to the repeater, connect to the Georgia Conference only! (Node #4544)

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

  • Hosted Nets: There are two nets currently hosted by link through the Georgia Conference (see right panel). Why not check into one of them? If you have an idea for a net that you would like to see hosted by CCARS, send an email to Raymond, K1JHH@arrl.net with a full description. Many clubs have an equipment-swap net, useful for culling items you no longer use and providing opportunity to others who may have use for your old equipment. Let us know what you think!

  • CCARS continues to work closely with the County EMA to refurbish the ARES communications room and antenna tower at the EOC. To date, VHF/UHF voice & digital modes have been established. Work on HF voice & digital modes, with hopes of a future WINLINK node as well, is underway. Raymond, K1JHH, has been appointed as Georgia ARES EC for Camden County, and is looking for other volunteers to become certified as EOC radio operators and assist with staffing the station during events.

  • Georgia ARES (GAARES) has been working for a number of years to provide DStar coverage over most of the state. W4ULB continues to work closely 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, Southeast Georgia Health Systems (SGHS) continues its work with the Region J Hospital Coalition to complete the HF/VHF/UHF & DStar Auxcomm stations for both Brunswick and Kingsland campuses of the hospital. Equipment has been delivered & installed and the stations are on the air as KO4QAH (Camden) and KO4QAJ (Brunswick). Camden ARES is now looking towards training for hospital staff and other volunteers as station operators. If you are interested, please contact Raymond, K1JHH.

  • 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

  • ATTENTION: Until further notice, CCARS is suspending our monthly meeting schedule. Since more people have been showing up at 0900 every Saturday for breakfastat the Kingsland IHop, a vote was taken and all agreed to make that our meetings. Drop in and ask for the radio guys!

  • The 2021 CLUB ACTIVITY & HAMFEST CALENDAR has been posted - If you have an event you would like to see listed, let us know. Check out the 2021 Event Calendar for a complete listing

  • LINKS PAGE - Recently Updated!!
