Calgary Amateur  Radio

Welcome to the Calgary Amateur Radio Association (CARA) website!


CARA is dedicated to the HAM community of Calgary with the support of multiple repeaters in and around the Calgary area and our club station VE6AO, a premier contesting and DX station.

If your are in to sailing the high seas or off roading in the middle of no where, HAM radio could help be your link to the world.  Sailors can use Amateur radio from the middle of the ocean to contact the main land and help keep others informed of their progress.  If you find your self in trouble, Amateur radio can be another link to get help using HF (High Frequency) radio.  Those off roading in the middle of no where can use VHF/UHF to call others to let them know your status.

Members of CARA take part in many public service events every year. Events like the Great Canadian Cookie Race and Calgary Winter Car Rally. For a complete list of events and whom to contact to help out go to our public service page.

Are you interested in becoming a Ham Radio Operator? CARA holds classes twice a year. Go to the education page for more information.
