Welcome One and All to our Website!

Our website is now located on
The website has been completely moved to the Amazon Web Services for a more reliable and stable environment but most of all it also will allow me the ability to make changes from anywhere.

The computer used for the previous server was getting old and the Windows Server 2012 OS was getting close to "End of Life" support so this was the best way to keep things up to date and running.

As for the move of the webpage and it's documents and data, I think I have everything moved now. I will try to keep you posted with any additional progress.

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 but most of all we want to share the ham radio hobby with you.

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 the area for some food, fun, relaxation and share information or answer any questions you might have. We start at 6:30PM and continue on until we are ready to call it quits for the evening. Our next meeting is at Scoobys Subs & Old School Ice Cream on Tuesday - March 2 2021 @ 6:30PM.

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!!

Federal Registration Number (FRN): If you are taking any class amateur radio exam, the VECs who are administering the exams are now required by the FCC to submit your FRN with your license application form. New license applicants should create an FCC user account and register their Social Security Number (SSN) in the FCC Commission Registration System (CORES) before attending exam sessions. Registrants will be assigned an FRN which will be used in all license transactions with the FCC. For instructions on how to register your SSN and receive an FRN from the FCC, visit the FCC's Registration page and the FCC's Registration instructions page..
