If you have an interest in ham radio, you are invited to the North Georgia Tri-State Amateur Radio Club meeting. Regular club meetings are held on the First Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm local time at the Branan Lodge.

If you are a ham, you can access our 2 meter repeater over the Internet on EchoLink at KF4CU-L, Blairsville, GA.

Go to for contact information and/or post your messages here.

All we have is what we do.

Part of being a Radio amateur (Ham) is community service. Hams provide communications during emergencies when the cell phone and Internet services go out. It's 1930's technology, but it works.

We even use a Satellite dish to get on the Internet so people can get messages sent by email to family and friends during a disaster.

I'm also posting this information on Georgia Baptist Disaster Relief at where you can find contact information.

Georgia Baptist Relief is an organization second to the Red Cross, as far as numbers are concerned. I am part of the communications group, but you don't have to be a ham or even Baptist to join. In addition to communications, there is a need for cleanup crews, child care, and food groups. To learn more google on Georgia Baptist Relief. I'm also posting the following training here.

Disaster Relief Clean-up and Recovery ,

Unit GA13R has been activated to help with the clean-up of storms in
Missouri. This area was hit with sever winter storms which caused
considerable tree damage. Our specific location may change from
time to time, but we are beginning our service in SW Missouri.

Disaster Relief units are working over a large area to provide
assistance to the people impacted by the storms. Numerous States
already have DR teams working in Missouri and Oklahoma. With God's
help, we will send teams on a rotating basis to help the people who
were struck by the storms.


Sounds like you have a nut loose behind the keyboard.

Field Day

June 28-29, 2008

at the Senior Center Pavilion behind the Senior Center

Come and see what Ham Radio is all about...

Where the spirit of “Amateur Radio Past” joins forces with the Next Generation of Innovations,
Interests and Individuals!!!

ARRL Field Day is the most popular on-the-air operating event in
amateur radio. On the fourth full weekend in June, tens of thousands of
amateur radio operators gather for a public demonstration of our
service. Field Day is part educational event, part operating event,
part public relations event – and ALL about FUN!

Amateur radio is about knowledge and growth.  It is a hobby and service that truly offers “something for everyone.” Amateur Radio embraces both the old and new.  While
CW may no longer be a testing element, it is still a strong and
favorite operating mode for many.  Tens of thousands of operators are
embracing digital technologies, from RTTY to newer digital modes like
PSK31 and Olivia.  Phone operation, probably the largest segment of the
hobby, also has new frontiers to be explored with digitized voice,
VOIP, and IRLP. And this is why Field Day – the largest annual
on-the-air operating event – is so exciting.  It gives all – the old
timer and the newcomer, the brass-pounder (Morse code) and the computer assisted
operator – the chance to share and teach the broad range of modes and
technologies we find in our hobby.

Field Day is truly the time in which we bring amateur radio to Main Street USA.
By setting up in parking lots, malls, Emergency Operations Centers,
parks and even at home, amateur operators learn skills that will allow
them to better serve their communities.  Setting up in these public
venues gives added public relations value – their friends and neighbors
can see and experience the fun and public service capability that their
“ham radio” neighbors bring to the community.

Join in the fun! For more information on amateur radio and the ARRL – the national organization for Amateur Radio – visit" href="">
