Announcements

NOTICE:  The 145.390 and 147.060 repeaters have changed the CTCSS tone to 88.5 hz.    UHF repeater tones both remain 100.0 hz. If you are unable to key the repeater or not hearing it but seeing it as busy, you will need to change the tone frequency to 88.5 hz for the 2 meter repeaters.

Weekly Net meets every Monday at 9 PM local time on the club repeaters.

Check-ins taken via Netlogger, 145.390 (88.5) and 443.200 (100.0).  If there are issues with the repeaters, the alternate repeater is 147.060 with a 88.5 tone.

NEW!!!!  Read announcement about Netlogger below

The Monday night emergency net on 145.390 is now using Netlogger available at http://netlogger.org/  and taking checkin’s via internet in addition to normal checkins via radio.  There is not an Android or Apple app that supports it.  Available platforms are Windows Vista, 7, 8, 10, MAC OS, and Linux.  If you check in via computer/Internet, do not check in via radio unless you have emergency/traffic, or an announcement.  You will be acknowledged as being present and called upon for comments.   If you are using Netlogger, it makes you visible to the net control station once you connect to the net in progress  and you  will be recognized as the net progresses.  If you do not plan to stay for a comment, you should request to be checked in and out.

The N4FV 441.975/446.975 100.0 tone UHF repeater is on the air from West Barton Ridge Road in Greeneville.  If you live in or near Greeneville, try it out!

After consuming much food and drink, a very good time was had by all with the Dirty Santa game.  The most popular items that were swapped around the most were a couple of flashlight lanterns, a coffee carafe, and a Kenwood UHF mobile radio.
