Info about us
Cherokee Amateur Radio Society is an organization of FCC licensed amateur radio operators (also called Hams) that meet and share the hobby as well as educate people about amateur radio, and support our local community in times of disaster. We are located in Cherokee County Georgia and have club call sign WX4CAR.
The club also participates with ARES, and the Cherokee County EOC when severe weather gets close to the area or we can help with public service projects.
The members of the club also dedicate some of their time to promote and help new hams to develop their skills and knowledge on Amateur communications modes and to be better operators.

Thanks to the many volunteers that helped for the Boy Scouts Jamboree on the Air on Saturday (21st). We had 4 stations going and made some contacts with other scout troops in Curacao, Brazil, Quebec Canada, and many other sites along the eastern seaboard. Good time was had by all.
