Welcome

Whats Happening:

The PCARC Net meets on each Tuesday, except the 2nd Tuesday (meeting night), on the 147.180 (+123.0) repeater at 8pm. All stations are welcome to check in.

 

The New Back-up Repeater has arrived. The Tech who was building it finally got crystals to 147.18. The extra repeater cavities need to be tuned and it can then be put into operation. We will most likely put into full operation as soon as the CAT 1000 controller is connected to it and programmed. The Kenwood repeater will then be put on the bench, cleared, and re-programmed and put back into full-time operation. This will give us 2 repeaters to use in case one goes down or we lose power at the main site.
