Welcome One and All to our Website!


Time for another
146970 Fox Hunt

Time to start thinking about our next FoxHunt!!
Got ideas? Talk with Ken, KJ4CTZ or Joe, KA4WJB (and others too)

The goal of this website is to provide you with a little information about the Sun Country Amateur Radio Society, our repeaters, some of the activities associated with our group and a bunch of general ham radio information.

We are located in North Central Florida, Marion County, in the town of Anthony, just north of Ocala, FL. We are about 90 NNW of Orlando, about 75 miles from the east or the west coast of Florida and about 35 miles south of Gainesville. MAP

Our group is more of a social group rather than a official structured club. We get together every 2 weeks and meet at one of the local restaurants in town for some food, fun and relaxation. We start at 7:00PM and continue on until we are ready to call it quits for the evening. Our next meeting is at Crossroads Country Kitchen on Tuesday - Oct. 24th, 2017 @ 7:00PM .

If you would like to learn more about ham radio, if you think you have some interest in ham radio but would like to learn more or if you are a local ham operator looking for a great group of people to socialize with, we encourage you to come and join us. Everyone is welcome!!


GOOD NEWS! - More Bandwidth

The web server has been running on the Bright House TV Internet service with bandwidth speeds at a little over 200mbs. Now we have been switch over to Spectrum (they bought out Bright House) and as a result, we have internet speeds of over 300mbs. Response should be much better than it has been and if you download any files from our server, download times should decrease. So far, making this change has improved the traffic handling significantly on our end. Let me know if you experience any problems.

Even though the website has been completed, there will always be things to update. For the most part, the core information is complete.

It took a lot of time to get everything moved over from the old website and then move the server to the new network without any interruption of service. There will be some things that I will add from the time to time. If you can't find something you were looking for, let me know and I will try to restore it back as it was. Otherwise we'll try to keep the information here as up to date as we can.

UPDATE: The Mail Server Has Been Shut Down Due to circumstances beyond our control, we have shut down the mail server. I am looking for a way to get around this issue. Watch here for updates!!
