Folks,

 

At the October meeting, it was decided to change the date and time of the
club UHF/VHF net.

 

The new time and day is:

 

Day:  Tuesday evenings.

Time:  7 pm

Repeaters:  Bellville VHF and UHF, as well as Columbus VHF

 

Refer to the club web site <http://w5sfa.org/repeaters.htm>  if you need
repeater frequency and offset information.  The new schedule will start next
week.  The net is informal, and it's a great way to check out how your radio
and antenna are working.

 

Other news...the club will be installing a second Yaesu DR-1X

interface board is purchased.  The new repeater will be installed on VHF,
and will complement the identical setup we installed last year on UHF.  The
repeaters will remain linked, and are backward compatible with analog
transmissions.  

 

The addition of the 2M digital repeater will allow club members to utilize
less expensive Yaesu FTM-3200 transceiver (currently selling for $135
online) as well as the fancier dual-band models.

 

73,
