Welcome to 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.

Club Campout - 3rd Edition

Edition 1 and 2 were very successful - lots of fun and great radio.

Join us for Edition 3 at Airey Lake Campground Oct 23, 24, 25.

For directions go to www.freecampsites.net and search for "Airey Lake, MS".

This is completely off grid, so bring your own power, food, and shelter. Great chance to practice your emergency communications skills. Lots of rag chewing is expected and encouraged.
