The Cariboo Chilcotin Amateur Radio Society (CCARS) is composed of volunteer, Industry Canada licensed amateur radio (HAM) operators who install and maintain a network of VHF voice and digital radio repeaters. The principle mandate of Radio Amateurs is to provide emergency communications. This holds especially true in areas where no commercial equivalent exists or is non-operational due to disaster. This is even more relevant in rural BC where cellular service is marginal or non-existent.

We are located in the Cariboo / Chilcotin area of BC (in the Williams Lake & area, which is south of Prince George & Quesnel and north of Clinton & 100 Mile House). If you are interested in amateur radio and/or have thought about getting your amateur radio license, then please join us and become a member. We welcome anyone and look forward to new members like you becoming part of our team. You may contact us anytime.
