Grab a seat on the bus, sit down, relax, pour yourself a cup of coffee and ride along with us. Come visit our web site and information pertaining to the finest hobby in the world and the greatest net on the ham bands where friendliness, caring, and service prevails!
The South Coast Amateur Radio Service, popularly known as "Southcars", or "SCARS" is a service net, recognized by the ARRL, whose purpose is to assist those seeking to contact other amateur radio stations, or areas, to provide weather and travel information, whenever needed, if available, and to assist in emergencies. All amateur radio stations are welcome. We do not handle formal traffic, but can, and will, in the event of an emergency.
Southcars is in operation every day of the year. The net times are: Monday through Sunday 8AM until 1PM, all times are Eastern. Net operation is on 7.251mhz (the 40 meter band).
Additionally a 'Traders Net' is conducted on Wednesdays immediately following the closing of the morning regular net session.
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!
