CCARC Guide for New Members This is a comprehensive document covering a multitude of subjects starting with what is amateur radio and continuing up through the many varied aspects of amateur radio that might spark your interest. Do take the time to download and read it!


The Ham Bands This is a chart provided by the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) that visually depicts the many amateur radio frequency bands and their use. A great visual aid to have handy at your station to ensure you stay within authorized frequency and mode boundaries setup for our use.
