Home of The Cascades Amateur Radio Society – CARS – Welcome!
The Cascades Amateur Radio Society (CARS); a volunteer organization of amateur radio operators in Jackson County Michigan. The club has a long history of amateur radio activity in the Jackson area. We have been in existence in one form or another since the early 1930’s. CARS began when the existing 2 local clubs combined forces and formed a single non-profit (501c3) organization (CARS) and the rest is history.
We are proud to support other organizations in the Jackson area as needed and hope to expand our ability in the services that we can provide in the future.
