Welcome to the new website for the Chatham-Kent Amateur Radio Club.

This forum is designed to serve as a meeting place for members to share ideas and comments. It will be visible to the public, but only forum members may post. We suggest using your callsign as screen name.

Membership of this forum will not be limited to club members. Any licenced amateur is invited to join us. Exceptions will be made for anyone without a licence if they have an interest in our hobby - new amateurs and new club members should be encouraged.

Anybody with information to include in our website is invited to contact the webmaster.

Have fun, and enjoy the site!

We've made some changes to the website. All new members must be approved by site administration in addition to clicking a confirmation link via email. Only licenced amateurs registering under a valid callsign will be allowed. SWLs are invited to visit the site and submit posts to an administrator.

This was necessary after somebody registered yesterday, and posted their registration link right on the site claiming to have problems, which resulted in 47 pages of spam overnight by robots. They all used anonymous proxy servers so cannot be traced. This board is subjected to numerous hacking/spam attempts 24/7 and this is the first one to get through.

The offending material was promptly removed, and registered access is now restricted to those holding a licence, which does not affect any existing member. Guests may still view the board. If any administrator notices someone posting a registration link under any pretense (like pretending to have a problem), delete that user please, and all their posts. Likewise, do not approve anyone who isn't good on QRZ.
