Ron, WA4HWN, originally developed the Southcars website in 1998 as the membership's interest in Internet activities increased dramatically. The first site went online in December 1998. He found that QSL.Net was growing rapidly in size and was offering "free" space on their domain for amateur radio related sites. There were, somewhat surprisingly, other organizations all ready on line whose initials were "S.C.A.R.S." so, it was necessary to set up the Southcars site as "www.qsl.net/wa4hwn-scars".
In the year 2000, southcars.com was purchased. On February 18th, 2000, the southcars.com domain was moved from Blue Domino hosting to qsl.net and we became one of the early ham radio organizations with a dot com name. It made it much easier for us to relay our web site address during net sessions -- www.southcars.com.
On January 1st, 2009, Jeff - W4GPL, took the webmaster reigns from Ron - WA4HWN, after his years of great service as Southcars webmaster.
Jeff switched the site to a content management system (www.drupal.org) so that the net managers could more easily update the site without having to know HTML (the language websites are written in).
