Welcome To The Scott County Amateur Radio Society


Special Event Station at Carter Family Music Center

The Scott County Amateur Radio Club will be operating a Special Event Station, in Scott County Virginia, celebrating the Birthday, of the Birth of Country Music as it was introduced to the Nation by the early recordings of the Carter Family in 1927.

The Carter Family Memorial Music Center, a non-profit organization, serves fans and supporters of old-time country and folk music through the presentation of weekly performances at the Carter Family Fold, in Hiltons, Virginia. It also honors the memory of the first family of country music, the legendary Carter Family (A.P. Carter, Sara Carter, and Maybelle Carter), whose first recordings (in 1927) are credited with giving birth to the commercial country music industry. The Carter Family Memorial Music Center was founded and is directed by Janette Carter, daughter of A.P. and Sara, who with Sara’s cousin Maybelle, comprised the original Carter Family,

The Scott County Amateur Radio Society, is a radio club with our
main headquarters located in Gate City, VA, in Scott County.  Our
goal, is to promote the amateur radio hobby.  We participate in the
ARRL Field Day every year, and also have a few get togethers, and
activities during each year, in addition to our regular monthly club
meetings.  We would be glad to have any and all radio amateurs, as
well as any perspective new hams, to come join us, and enjoy the
fellowship that ham radio has to offer.  Our club is also closely tied
to the Amateur Radio Emergency Service, and we work closely with
the government of Scott County Virginia, to help with any of their
communications needs, in the event of an emergency.

Please email me any ideas or requests for the site at k4lmp@k4lmp.org

Thanks and 73,
Jeff Flanary
