About us

The Churchill Amateur Radio Society (C.A.R.S.) is a 501c charitable organization registered with the State of Nevada and U.S. Government.

C.A.R.S. Corporation serves as the technical
 services for Churchill County Nevada’s critical local amateur radio communications networks. These services are of mutual benefit to not only Churchill County but for the entire local amateur radio community which the radio sites cover.  This includes the counties of: Churchill, Lyon, Humboldt, Washoe, Pershing, Lander, Storey, Douglas and Carson City Nevada.

  C.A.R.S. is a publicly funded amateur communications company. We are not a traditional “club” and we do not seek membership on a formal basis. The fact that you are a contributor and possess a ham radio license makes you an automatic member of the society. We are not politically aligned with any group, or entity. We are here to preserve the fun aspect of ham radio while building and maintaing the critical networks for the not so fun times of emergencies. We serve the needs of everyone in the amateur community with equal access and purpose. 

 Equipment upgrades, insurance, legal fees, the purchase of and associated maintenance material cost all come from YOUR public donation. YOUR charitable contribution is CRUTIAL to the upkeep and continued success of these emergency radio networks. PLEASE make a donation today that is also tax deductible! Contact us for receiving a formal contribution letter for your sizable donation. Any and all contributions are welcome and greatly needed.
