Nestled in the heart of the community, our Amateur Radio Club stands as a beacon for enthusiasts and novices alike, drawn together by a shared passion for communication technology and community service. At the core of our club’s activities is our VHF Repeater, operating on the 146.850 MHz frequency. This pivotal piece of technology not only facilitates clear, wide-range communication among members but also serves as a critical tool in emergency and disaster response scenarios.
Proudly, we are a key member of the SCHeart (South Carolina Healthcare Emergency Amateur Radio Team) NETWORK. This affiliation underlines our commitment to leveraging amateur radio capabilities to bolster healthcare emergency preparedness and response across South Carolina. Through our participation in the SCHeart NETWORK, we provide an indispensable link in the state’s emergency communication infrastructure, ensuring resilience and readiness in the face of crises.
Our activities span regular meetings, and hands-on field operations, designed to hone skills among members. We also actively participate in local and national amateur radio contests, showcasing our expertise and promoting the spirit of friendly competition.
Whether you’re an experienced ham looking to contribute your skills to a noble cause, or a curious newcomer eager to dive into the fascinating world of amateur radio, we welcome you. For more information on how to join and become part of our vibrant community, reach out to us. Together, let’s continue the tradition of innovation, service, and fellowship that defines our club.
