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

Check-ins taken on  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 Internet, do not check in via radio unless you have emergency/traffic, an announcement, mobile, or do not have access via Netlogger.  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.

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! 

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

Next club meeting is Tuesday September 3rd.   All members are encouraged to attend as a 2/3 majority of members are needed for a vote to change the bylaws and we have not been able to accomplish this goal yet.

Hamfest Planning will begin at the next meeting.  It is very important all members that are going to help out at the hamfest need to attend the October meeting.
