Welcome to the web site of the Mississippi Coast Amateur Radio Association (MCARA).
Our purpose is to promote amateur radio involvement and growth. We work toward this through on the air activity, enjoyable fellowship, public awareness, education and training.
We will be offering many opportunities in the year to come for this and hope, if you are on the coast or just visiting, that you can join us for some of our activities and services. Please check out our web site and see what we are doing and what we have to offer. Thanks for coming by.
