The President’s Corner

Welcome to the Chattanooga Amateur Radio Club (CARC).

Happy New Year!  The old year has gone and we start a new year with great hope and confidence in all the good things that lay in store.  One item of business that is of interest to all hams is the Amateur Radio Parity Act.  The ARRL prepared the above video to help you better understand what the act will and won’t do.  We encourage you to watch it so that your understanding may be accurate and be on the ready to dispel any misconceptions you may hear from others.

The ARRL has also provided a simple way for you to tell your representatives what you think.  Click here.  It’s very easy and only takes a minute.  Please do so today.
