Welcome One and All!

GOOD NEWS! - NEW Web Servers, NEW Website
Our website is now running on a newer web server. We really needed a backup computer incase we had some sort of failure. Once everything is up and running on the new server I will update the old server and maintain it as a backup and development computer.

After months of research, planning and development, I finally decided it was time to create a new SCARS website and give it an entirely new look.

It's going to take some time to get everything moved over from the old website. In the meantime, I posted the new site so you can see the progress. There will be some things that I will drop from the menus. These will be items that were used very little absed on our website statistics If you can't find something you were looking for, let me know and I will move it.

The purpose of this website is to provide you with a little information about the Sun Country Amateur Radio Society, our repeaters, some of the activities associated with our group and general ham radio information.

We are located in North Central Florida, Marion County, in the town of Anthony, just north of Ocala, FL. We are located about 90 NNW of Orlando, about 75 miles from the east or the west coast and about 35 miles south of Gainesville.

Our group is more of a social group rather than a official structured club. We get together every 2 weeks and meet at one of the local restaurants in town for some food, fun and relaxation. We start at 7:00PM and continue on until we are ready to call it quits for the evening. Our next meeting is at La Rocco's - September 1st, 2015 @ 7:00PM . Everyone is welcome to join us.
