About us

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

C.A.R.S. Corporation serves as a social Amateur Radio Club and provider of emergency communications networks in times of need.
 This includes the counties of: Churchill, Lyon, Humboldt, Washoe, Pershing, Lander, Story, Douglas and Carson, Nevada,  and the Lake Tahoe California area.

  C.A.R.S. is a publicly funded amateur communications society. We are not a traditional “club” and we do not have the political hierarchy like in some organizations. We simply have a board of directors to satisfy the government’s requirement for our 501c7 organization. We come together for the fun of the hobby and to drive each other’s enthusiasm and interest in all aspects of amateur radio. We are not politically aligned with any group, or entity. We are here to preserve the fun aspect of ham radio while building and maintain some of the critical local emergency networks for the not so fun times. 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.
