Information about us
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 in the Woodstock, Georgia area and would like to participate, drop us a note and let us know. This website will provide details about the Field Day site.
The menu tabs on the far left will help you navigate to the area of interest.
If you have a question and would like to contact us, use the button at the top to go to the Contact Us page.
Want to present to the group?
We NEED members willing to present on a topic in an upcoming meeting. Per our survey, topics include DIY projects, various aspects of soldering, batteries and solar power, working ham radio satellites, and using microcontrollers in your project. Please contact Marty, Rob, or Joseph about your topic.
What do you want to see presented? Let the leadership team know.
Look for new sessions and all new topics in 2019. Submit your ideas to any club officer.
Slides are still posted for the 2017 and 2018 sessions and from early in the year.
Build It Project
We hope to do the club "build it" project. The Ham Radio Workbench website has a number of DIY projects you may want to try. WE are here to help.
I have a list of who is seriously interested in doing projects.
Plan is to have a "build it session" in 2019. What do you want to build? Tell us and we will plan to help.
