Carolina Radio Club News

The Club that puts Fun in Ham Radio!

One of the great things about Ham Radio is it’s ability to bring people together. Whether getting together at a hamfest, attending a seminar, making a QSO with a station around the world or getting together with friends on a project. Ham Radio is at it’s best when we can share the excitement of this hobby.

Nowhere is this more true than at Amateur Radio Club meetings that occur everyday across the U.S. and around the world. Both new and experienced operators gather to organize Ham Radio events, discuss technical issues, listen to presentations, volunteer in the community, perform licensing exams, swap stories and gear and generally promote the importance of Ham Radio to anyone who is willing to listen.

If you are a newly licensed ham or are thinking about becoming one…rest assured that you won’t find a more welcoming club than the Carolina Amateur Radio Club.

When: First Thursday of the month will be Testing. Second Thursday of the month will be Club Meeting & Program.

Time: 7:00 P.M.

If you have questions or concerns please contact…Les Cline (704)462-1131

Our meeting location is:
North 321 Fire Department
3769 Maiden Highway
Lincolnton, NC 28092

Carolina Radio Club New Site

I hope this will satisfy the needs of the club as it did take awhile for me to get the time to work on a site and get it onto something maintainable for anyone who wishes to help update it. If anyone has any issues with the new design let me know as I am still improving on it as we go. This is built using Jekyll and Github for hosting.


Key reasons for using this are:

  • Everything is a simple text file and can be edited in notepad. Does not require a editor or bulky software to edit.
  • Automatically formats everything appropriately as long as you use markdown and for reference: Markdown Cheat Sheet
  • Distributed maintenance via Github, no one has to be the owner of the server or content, everyone involved is.
  • Audit trail of who made changes last to the site and usually why, or at least a comment.

Thank you everyone for your patience,
