This is the home page for the Fayette County (GA) Amateur Radio Club an active affiliate club of the American Radio Relay League (ARRL). Our annual meeting takes place in January and is held at an area restaurant to encourage families to attend. Members are active in a number of specialized areas including Field Day, Contesting, Digital Modes, and EMCOMM to name a few. Most of the activity in the Fayetteville area is on the 145.210 repeater (131.8 hz tone) so come join us. Join us on our mailing list, instructions here or Read more

D-RATS training announcement - From AG4ZR

For those of you interested Buzz Kutcher (K3GWK), the EC for Butts County, has a D-Star / D-RATS training class taking place Saturday August 29th. See his invitation below and respond if you are interested. You can use D-Star and D-RATS over the Internet and, additionally, there are ways to convey D-RATS over other digital protocols besides D-Star. In fact, initially using the Internet is a good way to start out using D-RATS and then advance to using it over RF when you are ready. Stockbridge is near by and not a difficult drive. D-RATS is one of the standard digital communication applications we use in Georgia for EMComm but can serve as a communications platform by other means and not just through a D-Star repeater. If you are interested, you should make a decision soon as this has been broadly advertised and space is limited.

We have set up a D-Star/D-RATS class for August 29. The class will be held at the Piedmont Henry Medical Center’s Education Building 1133 Eagle’s Landing Parkway (EXIT 224, I-75) in Stockbridge. It will begin at 9 AM and run until Noon. John Davis will be the instructor.

After a lunch break there will be an NBEMS workshop from 1 PM until 3 PM.

Hopefully we will get a good turn-out from the southeast quadrant of the Metro District.

Info on new meeting location

I met with Robert Byard, KK4VCI, who secured the location for the Club's 2014 meetings. The directions to the Church is located on their website and they describe it better than I can. Highway 54 is a one-way street with east (coming from PTC) on one side of the Church and west on the other side. Once you get close to the Church, depending on the direction you are coming from, get on 54 East and continue past the city square to Melissa Segars street. Turn left onto Melissa Segars. The map below shows where you can park and enter the building. One entry is close to the small parking lot, which has handicap spaces. The other entry is across the street from the large parking lot. We will meet in room C-260. If you have any questions please ask. READ MORE for a map.
