  Campbell River Amateur Radio Society

- a RAC affiliated club

 

 

This web site is for the members and anyone wishing to see what we are about and what we are up to.  Please feel free to ask if you need further information.

 

Ham Radio is an international hobby

Members are in daily contact with other ham radio stations around the world.  Most of the conversations are in English.

You do not need to know Morse Code in order to get your ham radio certificate, but you must pass an exam covering radio regulations and some basic technical knowledge.

Our club runs courses regularly for those that prefer a classroom setting.  On-line courses are also available from Radio Amateurs of Canada (www.rac.ca).

Something for Everyone

Amateur radio has many things to offer ranging from talking to local hams using a handheld radio or to the International Space Station to long-distance communication by bouncing signals off the ionosphere.  Perhaps using voice Morse Code or even pictures.

Both the technically challenged and electronic engineers use ham radio for entertainment, to keep in touch with friends or for provide information to authorities in case of emergencies.  There are always new things to learn for those needing intellectual stimulation.

As a ham radio operator you learn to communicate in an efficient accurate manner.


The club has a (semi-) formal meeting every month, except July and August.  Currently this is conducted over Zoom.

We also meet over radio every Saturday morning at 10:00 on the Mt. Menzies repeater.  Everyone is welcome to join in.

We're also on Facebook

and Twitter
