The “Clarksville Amateur Transmitting Society” (CATS), club is an organization of amateur (ham), radio operators dedicated to community service, emergency communications, and the promotion of the science and art of radio.  Club members assist the Clarksville Police Department with supplemental communication and traffic/crowd control at parades, marathons, walkathons, bike runs and other events as needed.  During severe weather, or other emergencies, when normal lines of communication are either down, or overloaded, CATS members, working in conjunction with established emergency organizations, step in to assist where required.  Don’t think we’re all business:  along the way we have some fun, too!  We do field work with Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, and conduct a weekly net operation.  America’s “hams” are part of an international fellowship of radio enthusiasts who share the same interests and possess the same sense of dedication.  Interested in becoming a ham operator?  CATS is actually holding free license classes for anyone interested.   Classes are held on Monday evenings starting at 6pm. For more information, contact Jimmie Shelton at 931-431-4081.  When you think you’re ready, we have members who are FCC certified through the W5YI GROUP to administer license examination.

73s and good luck.

 if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.
