Welcome to PCARS

PCARS puts the FUN in Ham Radio!

Check us out at our local meeting and see how much fun we’re having in person! In addition to our monthly meeting, we try to have at least one activity each month—another good opportunity to check us out. If you think we look like we’re having FUN, then the next step is to join us.   We’ve got members as far away as California and we welcome all Hams as part of our group.

In addition to having fun, we have made friendships with other Amateur operators, and have spread the message about what Ham radio is all about to our communities. Read the rest of this entry »

January is quickly coming to a close.  If your dues are not renewed by January 31st, your membership expires and you'll need to "rejoin" PCARS!  
Print a membership renewal form off the website, mark it as a renewal and get it in the mail to me ASAP!  As an alternative you can pay with PAYPAL via the website.
Next week I'll be at the club site both Wed. Jan 24 and Thurs. Jan 25th!

Due to predicted road conditions for Saturday, January 13th, we are cancelling the Open House and VHF Room Dedication.  

This event will be rescheduled as soon as the calendar allows.  

I appreciate this is short notice, but the safety of our members is very important.

November 2017 Meeting Minutes.

Attached are the November 2017 meeting minutes to be approved at the January 2018 meeting on January 8, 2018.  Since they only business conducted at the December 2018 meeting was the presentation of the President's Awards, I will include a comment on that in the January 2018 minutes.
