Most new hams are lost when it comes to all the different aspects of our hobby and we are here to help. We offer Amateur Radio Classes to the public several times a year, and we have a 96% pass rate on the first try. Company Overview Cleveland County Amateur Radio Service or CCARS, is located in Shelby, NC. We welcome all hams and non hams alike. Description We have members who are very active in the emergency services aspect of amateur radio including ARES and SKYWARN as well as Fox Hunting. Maybe your interest lies in the Digital Modes such as PSK31. There is also the National Traffic System that uses hams to route information worldwide. Maybe you just need help understanding what all these things are and what all is available in this great hobby. All of our meetings consist of a little bit of business followed by some form of Educational Program and fellowship. Our goal is to help promote ham radio to all who are interested and help existing hams expand their skills and abilities. Everyone is welcome to join us! Basic Info.

CCARS Fox Hunt Saturday July 18, 2020 at 10:00 AM

Join the Cleveland County Amateur Radio Service this Saturday as we search for the “Fox” hiding somewhere in Cleveland County. Hunt for the Fox solo, or team up with friends and find it first!

Check-ins will begin at 10:00 AM on the CCARS club repeater 147.045 MHz (+600 off set with 127.3 tone). Afterwards the Fox will begin transmitting at intervals on 146.535 MHz until all of those who checked in have found the Fox.

Where is the Fox hiding?
- The Fox will be hidden on public property somewhere within Cleveland County.
- The Fox will not move once the hunt begins. What do I need to participate?
- At minimum you’ll need a portable transceiver along with a map and compass.
Remember
- Safety first! Mind your surroundings when taking readings and obey all traffic laws. We’re only competing for bragging rights so don’t take unnecessary risks just to be first.
- No trespassing! The Fox will be hiding on public property, and accessible via public roads or paths. Don’t trespass on private property while hunting.
- Have Fun!

I have no idea who had the idea to take two programs, well three, and make them communicate with each. I can tell you, it will make you stress, want to use bad words, throw the computer, and many other things. But, I have NA4CC Digital station ready to roll for #ARRLFD2020

We will have the ability to use N1MM+ along with MMTTY for RTTY and WSJT-X for FT modes in the 3A Class that will be held at the Waco Community Volunteer Fire Department come June 27 & 28! If you want to see texting via radio waves, not cell phones, come on out sometime between 2pm June 27 to 2pm June 28!
