The Jackson County Amateur Radio Association was started by the two clubs in
Jackson County, Mississippi. The East Jackson County and West Jackson
County clubs mereged to make a bigger and stronger club for the
support of the county and the amateurs in the area. Through the worst
the Gulf Coast can toss at JCARA, our members have stood tall and never
failed to get the message through. Our site is full of information
about ham radio, emergency communications and the Gulf Coast. Please
join us often and let us know what you think of this site.
JCARA / W5WA is an Amateur
Radio Club centered
around leadership, support and learning the ways and means of better
radio communications. We fully support all emergency and communication
efforts in the Jackson County area, the State of Mississippi and the
United States of America. JCARA is proud to be the winners of
Field Day 2AMS class station and look forward to helping you exceed
in any amateur radio needs you may have.
When the Jackson County Amateur Radio
Association was formed by the two amateur radio
clubs in Jackson County, MS, our goal was to better serve the public
and all amateur radio operators in the area. With the two clubs
joining in 2003 things along the Gulf Coast have been hard hit with
hurricanes and other hardships. But the club is growing into a strong
amateur radio association.
We are very blessed to have members that are truly at the
forefront of many different aspects of ham radio. It is hard to go to
a meeting or get on the repeaters and not find someone who has a vast
working knowledge of DX, antennas, home brewing, kit building, CW, slow
scan TV and other digital modes, including VHF/UHF DXing. A full list is hard
We also have traffic nets, monthly presentations and boast
membership from five counties and three states. All of whom come together when the chips are down and serve the
public with their full hearts and minds.
