Welcome to our web site!

Thank you for visiting the web home of Culver City ARES (CCARES)!  In our effort to bring you up-to-date content this site will be by its very nature a work in progress.

Field Day 2017 is rapidly approaching and we plan to have an even better on-the-air presence than last year!  The dates are Saturday, June 24th, at 11am to Sunday, June 25th, at 11am.  Please register online for FD by clicking on the drop-down under “About us” or click here.  For questions about Field Day, email field-day@ccares.net.

We are very excited to be offering Club Days on the first and third Saturday of each month from 10am until 1pm at Fire Station 1 in downtown Culver City.  This is an excellent way to learn and become proficient on the station equipment and many other things that have to do with CCARES like programing radios.  If you have not yet been to our Radio Room, the “talk-in” procedure is to use our repeater, K6CCR-R, on 445.6, -5MHz offset, CTCSS code 131.8. If you do not have a radio, please call the EOC Radio Room at (310) 253-6848 for access instructions.  We hope to see you at one soon!

One of the first things that is recommended for CCARES members is to download, install, and configure your user client for the Winlink system which is, for Windows, Winlink Express.  A tutorial can be found in the “CCARES 101” section of this site.
