General information

All CARC repeaters require a PL tone of 156.7Hz for access. The system consists of the following repeaters:

Fort Jackson (I-20/I-77 corridor) 146.775 repeater -600 khz input
Columbia Metro 147.330 repeater +600 khz input

All amateur radio operators with the privileges to operate on these frequencies are encouraged to check in to the CARC nets at least monthly. Your participation is vital and provides communications training for future emergencies. All local amateur radio operators are encouraged to monitor the CARC repeaters while traveling in the area so out of town hams might be assisted if needed. In the event of threatening weather or other emergency situations being declared or undeclared, the regular nets will be suspended until the threatening weather or the emergency has cleared the area or has been resolved. The Columbia Amateur Radio Repeater System serves as the backup repeater for the Midlands SKYWARN Region and may be called into use during a weather incident. ARES/RACES use our repeaters during drills and incidents.
