We operate in south central Wisconsin to provide
supplementary communications in times of
emergency and to lend support to all Hams as they
enjoy and develop the hobby. Hams from Jefferson,
Rock and Walworth Counties volunteer their talents
and equipment to serve other agencies and the
public. To provide reliable communications for local
emergencies, assist the National Weather Service
during times of severe weather, as well as the
Tour de Fort Bicycle Ride, Jefferson County Literacy
Council Bike Ride, and Great Midwest Relay Race.
TCARC maintains a VHF repeater on 145.49 Mhz with
a tone of (123.0). The "Frequency of Knowledge"
Net is held every Monday evening at 8:00pm. This
net is open to all amateur operators. On Wednesday
evenings the Jefferson County ARES/RACES Net is
held at 8:00pm. Amateur operators are encouraged
to participate in this net. Also, on the third Monday
of each month join us on 144.120Mhz AM for an
"old time" AM get together. This net meets right
after the normal Monday evening net.
TCARC sponsors an annual spring swap meet for amateur operators,
computer enthusiasts, and the public at the Jefferson County
Fairgrounds in Jefferson in early March.
