Welcome One and All!

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, which is just north of Ocala, FL.

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.  Everyone is welcome to join us.

Our next "get-together" will be at Crossroads Country Kitchen, 7947 W Hwy 40, Ocala, FL 34482   [Map] [Menu] on Tuesday, March 31st, 2015 @ 7:00PM. Hope to see you there!

All hams and/or people interested in ham radio are welcome to join us!!
