Welcome to the CARC Home Page
Welcome to the Columbus Amateur Radio Club (W4CVY).  We are located in Columbus, Georgia.  We hope you find these pages interesting and informative, whether you are currently a licensed ham or are considering testing for your license.

On these pages you'll note information on our club and its activities in particular and ham radio in general.  Hams are always ready to share their experiences with others and members of C.A.R.C. are no different.  If you are looking for information about amateur radio and you don't find it on these pages, don't hesitate to ask us.

We hope to see you at one of our monthly C.A.R.C. meetings, frequent activities, Friday lunches and to hear you on the air!
