Welcome to WA4ORT - Central Georgia Amateur Radio Club in Warner Robins

Making our community a better place!

Middle Georgia Data Network

It’s QSO party time!!  Here are the upcoming QSO Parties in the
Southeastern Division. Checkout each website for complete information.
 

The MGDN is an amateur radio based data network, it is not an amateur radio club or association such as MGRA or CGARC. However, both clubs have members who support and participate in the networks. And the networks are discussed at both club meetings.

MGDN simply provides a place to coordinate Packet Network and D-RATS network operations and advancement; and to show current network status and mapping. MGDN does not operate any repeaters, only packet nodes and mail drops and D-RATS stations.

GAARES MISSION

image70

A primary responsibility of the Amateur Radio Service, as established by Part 97 of the Federal Communications Commission's regulations, is the performance of public service communications for the general public, particularly in times of emergency when normal communications are not available. To that end, the Georgia Section Amateur Radio Emergency Service members, under the oversight of the American Radio Relay League, will equip themselves and train to provide communications as a direct service to the general public through government and relief agencies located in Georgia, local government jurisdictions, the State of Georgia, and Federal Agencies when requested by those agencies.
