Celebrating 41 years of operation at The Airport In The Sky! - April 27, 1973 - 2014


The repeaters are located 26 miles off the Southern California coast on Santa Catalina Island. From their offshore location at an elevation of 1602 feet above sea level, they have great coverage of the Southern California area and are operated 100% on solar power. The repeaters are open repeaters for all amateurs who are members, non-members, visitors and even travelers and vacationers to the Southern California area. We simply ask that they obey FCC regulations and operate courteously.

Holiday Gift Exchange

It’s voluntary and to participate you need to bring a wrapped gift of about $15 in value.  You will be given a ticket, the tickets will be drawn randomly and you can come to the table and pick out a gift.

Be thoughtful, and choose a gift you would enjoy receiving. Don’t forget the YLs in the club. If you bring a gift of particular interest  to the YLs, please label it so. CARA tradition dictates a Red ribbon for ladies’ gifts and a Green ribbon for men’s.
