The clubs Yaesu DR-1X repeater has been installed at Mt. Hope as of 12 PM on Wednesday 10/13. At the time of this post it appears to be working as it should. Please try to check-in to the Monday night net so we can give it a real workout.
At last nights member meeting it was decided to purchase a new duplexer for the 444.950 repeater using funds from recent fundraising efforts. The testing of the 2 meter repeater continues.
3 of our members showed up bright and early at the Mt. Hope site to clear out the old shelter, they did a fantastic job! Thank you to ED WB6NCO, Peter N3PH and Dave KB3RAN for their hard work. We will be trying to sell the fruits of their labor at the St. Mary’s hamfest this weekend and the Columbia Amateur Radio Association hamfest next weekend.
The 2 meter repeater has been installed at the new Mt. Hope tower site. Click on the Repeaters and nets link above and then 146.985 repeater for a picture. Clicking on the picture will make it larger.
The part need for the club repeater will not arrive in time. For this net we will be using the 147.195 repeater which has a very good footprint in the county. Thank you to Gene N3NO for lending us use of his repeater.

The 2 meter repeater was removed this morning 9/14/21 and dropped off at the repeater doctor. He will thoroughly check it out along with the new parts supplied by the county. We do expect the repeater to be back at its new home for the Monday night net on 9/20/21 so stop by and check it out.
