LATEST NEWS
  • It's hurricane season!! September is National Preparedness Month In the last two years October has brought unprecedented bad weather to the Golden Isles and this year will probably be no different. Are you ready? Do you have a plan? Food? Water? Radios with back up power? Don't wait! "When the time for action arrives, the time for preparation has long passed"

  • 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!

  • Packet radio is making a comeback!. Packet nodes are popping up all over the country, primarily for EMCOMM uses, but open to all. 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! GAARES has plans to mount two Digipeaters in Waycross in the near future. The TNC-Pi can also be used to build an APRS tracker and a portable WINLINK node

  • The "South East Georgia Amateur Radio Auxiliary Communications" (SEGARAC) group (KN4AFG), Camden County's ARES organization, is currently working with the county EMA to begin the process of identifying, training, and equipping all local medical facilities required by DHS to participate in emergency communications drills. It will be a big task, as estimates have the number of qualifying facilities at near 20.

    SEGARAC is also working with Camden EMA and Georgia ARES to install a DStar repeater stack in our area, tied into the state wide DStar system. The major hold up right now is installation of four new towers as part of a county-wide public service communications upgrade, scheduled to be completed in 2019.

  • The 2018 CLUB ACTIVITY & HAMFEST CALENDAR has been posted - If you have an event you would like to see listed, let us know. Check out the 2018 Event Calendar for a complete listing

  • 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
