About Our
Club

 

  • The Cape May County Amateur Radio Club (CMCARC) is an American Radio Relay League (ARRL) affiliated club and is a Not For Profit Organization.  The CMCARC’s objectives are to provide, as a public service, radio communications in time of need utilizing skilled personnel, to promote operating efficiency, radio knowledge, fraternalism and to advance the general interest and welfare of amateur radio in Cape May County.  Our membership provides public service in time of emergency as well as general community service.

  • The CMCARC owns and operates the N2CMC repeater transmitting at 146.610 with a Pl of 88.5 and negative offset.  Our repeater is located within the Cape May County Crest Haven Complex near Cape May Court House.  Countywide coverage is good for both base and mobile.  Base coverage extends into Atlantic and Cumberland counties.  Our repeater is open for the use of all licensed amateurs.

  • A formal club business meeting is held the third Wednesday of each month (except December) in the Operations Room at the Cape May County Office of Emergency Management located in the basement of the County Library, 30 W. Mechanic St., Cape May Court House beginning at 7:00 PM.  An educational program or other activity usually follows the business portion of the meeting.

  • Each Wednesday about 10:00AM we meet for brunch at the Villas Diner & Pizzaria, 2100 Bayshore Road, Villas, NJ.  Anyone with an interest in amateur radio is welcome to attend.  This weekly event affords all members and visitors the opportunity to socialize with fellow amateur radio operators.

  • On Thursday evenings at 8pm we hold a 2 meter club net open to all amateurs on our N2CMC 146.610 - Pl 88.5 repeater.  All licensed amateurs are encouraged to participate.

  • The CMCARC has a corps of mentors, in ham language called Elmers, to assist club members and potential club members.  Do you think you might be interested in becoming a licensed amateur radio operator?  Are you newly licensed and need help getting into the hobby?  Are you a Technician Class amateur and think you might be interested in getting a higher class license so you can work HF?  Speak with one of our Elmers.  To meet an Elmer, email our president n2ltq@cmcarc.org, attend a club Wednesday brunch or one of our monthly business meetings.

  • Many of our members are Volunteer Examiners.  The club can administer basic licensing and license upgrade examinations.

  • The CMCARC is a perennial participant in the ARRL Field Day and the ILLW Lighthouse Lightship weekend.  We support the community by providing communications to bicycle races, marathons and other events.

Our Club History

  • The Stone Harbor Amateur Radio Klub "SHARK" was formed in March of 1975, having primary objectives of: providing a public service to the nearby shore communities through the development of supplemental emergency communications facilities; to encourage and assist interested individuals in qualifying for an amateur radio operators license; and to promote friendship and cooperation among amateurs who live in or visit the shore area.

  • In 1980 the Stone Harbor Amateur Radio Klub changed its name to the Cape May County Amateur Radio Club to reflect the membership base that had been established.
