Weekly Emergency Net meets every Monday at 9 PM local time on the club repeaters.  Check-ins taken on  2 meters and 440 mhz. If there are issues with the repeaters, the alternate repeater is 147.060 with a 123.0 tone.

Monthly meeting is 1st Tuesday of each month at 7 PM local time at the Roby Center.

Next club meeting is Aug 7th. Bob Gass N4FV will propose changing the CTCSS tone on the 145.390 repeater to 88.5 hz in an effort alleviate the “hum” many members are complaining about.   The problem appears in some radios and not others.  This is an issue with the roll off of the high pass filter in the audio circuit that is supposed to attenuate the tone level at frequencies below 300 hz not providing enough attenuation at 186 hz.
