The Concord Amateur Radio Society was founded in 1996 to promote
the service and technical side of Amateur Radio in Pike County Georgia. The
club callsign W4AMI is used in all special events such as Field Day and is
also used when the club net meets.
Concord Amateur Radio Society maintains two repeaters for the enjoyment of its membership
and for support of the SKYWARN weather network. In times of severe weather the repeaters
are linked to the Peachtree City, Georgia Weather complex to provide reports of severe
weather which may be occurring in the immediate area of the repeater's coverage.
Concord Amateur Radio Society is also a sister club of the Fayetteville Amateur Radio
Club and participates in that club's net activities on Tuesday evenings. Our repeater
system is linked to the Fayetteville repeater system providing coverage for all of
the South Metro Atlanta area.
In addition, the Concord Amateur Radio Society participates
in the Southeastern Linked Repeater Net which meets on Wednesday evenings. Our repeater
system is linked to the SLRN which covers much of the Southeast.
The Repeater System
is also configured to provide Echolink services to the membership. Our Echolink node
number is 5214 and we invite amateurs around the world to log into Echolink and pay
a visit to our area.
