Welcome to Cherokee Amateur Radio Society
Club Website for WX4CAR
Serving Cherokee County, GA and the surrounding communities in North Georgia
Cherokee Amateur Radio Society is an organization of FCC licensed amateur radio operators (also called Hams) that meet and share the hobby, educate people about amateur radio, as well as 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, and we help with local 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. We are a very active club and participate in ARRL Field Day every year. If you are located in Cherokee County or the surrounding area, we would like to invite you to participate. Use the Contact Us button to ask any questions you may have.
The menu tabs on the far left will help you navigate to the area of interest.
Next Club Meeting
February 11, 2023 at 10 AM EST at the WG Long Senior Center, Woodstock,GA
February will be a presentation by Jason Turnage - KO4NDP
Jason is an antenna experimenter and has been doing a lot of work with Loaded Verticals that he uses for POTA activations. His first interest is in homebrewing and this just carries over to the ham radio hobby. It will be a very practical look at what can be done with simple materials.
The Bylaws passed by unanimous vote on January 14, 2023 by the membership. There is a version 2.2 available for download using the same link we provided in the email. It is also published on the groups.io files section under the Club Bylaws folder.
Martin Buehring KB4MG, club President will be speaking at the Expo along with Dave Jensen(W7DGJ). The session topic is "Become a Magnet Club for Newcomers to Our Hobby" , where we discuss how clubs can attract new hams and then assimilate them into the club through training and activities.
Stay tuned for more 2023 events
