[W8LKY] AARC – The week ahead

Here’s a couple of items of note for the week ahead.
Tuesday- Our Homeland security net happens at 7:00PM on a simplex frequency of 147.51. In case of massive power outage, where our repeaters might not be available, it’s good to be fluent in Simplex operation.
Wednesday- This is our monthly meeting night. We meet for dinner at 5:45 at Frank’s Alliance Family Restaurant (428 E. State St, Alliance). Then at 7:30 is our monthly club meeting at the Alliance Community Hospital. We meet at 7:30pm in the Cafe Conference room. This months program will be a short program on club history.
Thursday- is our Net night. The net schedule is:
following nets Scheduled:
– 8:00PM Ten Meter SSB Net (28.400 MHz) – 8:30PM Ten Meter CW Net (28.100 MHz) – 9:00PM Two Meter FM Net (145.37 MHz)
In closing, don’t forget that our two-Meter repeater has been replaced with a Yaesu System Fusion machine. The big change you’ll notice will be it requires a tone to access now. Just plug in 110.9 as your transmit and receive tones, and you will be all set. We are currently running at 35 W, till we see how the coverage is.
Thanks to everyone who helped, mainly the repeater committee (besides myself, there’s Ben, KD8KMQ, Paul, K2ASA, Tony, KD8BBK, and Cliff, KE8FSZ. Special recognition goes to Carl, K7CE, Bob, WB8OVQ, and Eric, N8HHV.
