Please join us for dinner and take a few moments to thank the outgoing officers and to meet the incoming officers.
Please plan to arrive 5-15 minutes early so that we can start on time.  Please avoid arriving 30 minutes early as there is no way to accommodate ~50 people while the room is being set up!

Please RSVP to me as soon as possible tjhastiesr@gmail.com  so that we can get numbers for the restaurant.  Let me know how many in your party!  No big deal if plans change, but we need to be pretty close on the head count.
Hope to see you on January 20th!

New Repeater

General News

 

 

 

Good morning everyone,

 

With the excitement of the new 441.775 repeater coming online it has been brought to my attention that the repeater is being "kerchunked" quite a bit.

 

While this is common place it has been exacerbated with the new machine. I would like to remind everyone that it is not good repeater etiquette (or FCC legal) to simply "kerchunk" the repeater without identifying.

 

If you are testing your rig or trying to see how well the repeater is working in your area the correct (and FCC legal) way to do so would be to identify using your call sign and state that you are testing.
