440 Going Away Friday

Oh, about 9:30 or 10 in the morning, Steve, N7CPU and Dennis, KA0/OBC will remove the 449.60 repeater.

It Returns on Saturday morning!

Following a bench tune-up, Steve and Douglas, W7ADD are going to re-install the repeater Saturday.  We hope to have the repeater as sensitive as it should be, and we will have a chance to adjust audio levels up right.

Antenna Build party Oct 18, RSVP Steve, N7CPU by October 8

Please note that you must be a club member to participate in these antenna build projects.  A portion of your dues is devoted to covering the cost of parts.  If you are not yet a member, please join us!

Antenna Build - Dual-band vertical

This antenna build is scheduled to be in the back yard of Steve KB7KWK, morning of Saturday, October 18.  Please contact Steve, N7CPU via his email address in our contact page by October 8.  This will give him ten days to gather all of the parts for the number of people who plan to attend.

Antenna Build - 3-element Tape Measure Beam

Last August we had an antenna build party for a three-element Yagi.  Here is a link to a Web page outside of this wiki with full-color instructions provided by Steve, N7CPU.  Thanks Steve.

Repeater Status

Our repeater system was in good working order, following an August 30 work party (2014).  More recently, some degradation in performance is requiring another bench job to get the equipment up to proper sensitivity.
