The South Coast Amateur Radio Service, popularly known as "South Cars", is an ARRL recognized service net whose purpose is to assist those seeking to contact other amateur radio stations, to provide weather and travel information and to assist in emergencies. All amateur radio stations are welcome. South CARS does not handle formal traffic, but can, and will, in the event of an emergency.
South Cars is in operation every day of the year. The net times are: 8:00 A.M. until 10:00 A.M and from 12:00 noon until 2 P.M., Monday through Friday. Saturdays and Sundays the times are from 8 A.M. until 11 A.M. and again from 12 P.M. until 2 P.M. All times are Eastern. Net operation is on 7.251 MHz (the 40 meter band).
If you are a licensed ham operator (general class, or higher) you are invited to check into our net during any of the sessions and meet a great bunch of guys and gals!
The South CARS badge is made using our full color process. The club logo appears on the left side of the badge in full color along with the ARRL logo in black & yellow. The red background has a unique rain drop texture and all lettering is in black.
The South CARS name badge is $11.50 with a safety pin fastener.
