Thanks for visiting The Chesapeake Amateur Radio Service (CARS) located in Chesapeake, VA.

CARS is an amateur radio club that operates in Chesapeake, Virginia serving the needs of the Hampton Roads amateur radio community in the pursuit of their hobby as well as providing emergency communications back up for the City of Chesapeake. We also provide communications support to causes such as the American Diabetes Association’s Tour de Cure bicycle race to raise money for diabetes research.

We meet monthly at 116 Reservation Road in the Great Bridge section of Chesapeake and also offer instructional classes on getting licensed as well as testing to pass and obtain your FCC license to operate on radio frequencies designated for use in the United States by the Federal Communications Commission.
