Everyone is welcome. You do not need to be a licensed ham or a club member. Details will be announced after the November Boonville club meeting.
Amateur Radio is a great hobby. It is fun and educational. Perhaps more importantly,
it provides a means of communications in emergencies when other systems are
inoperative or overloaded. For fun, and for your safety and the safety of your family,
friends, and community, consider getting your Amateur Radio license this year.
Please contact any club member if you are interested. We are here to help.
1/1/15 Repeater receiver has been repaired. Thanks again to Bob and Darrell.
9//13/14 Thanks to Bob KA2FWN and Darrell K1DCC, the repeater is back up to full performance. Multiple receiver problems were corrected. We gained about 25 dB of receive sensitivity. This means if you needed 60 watts to get in before the repair, you should now be able to get in with about half a watt! It also means that transmissions from our Echolink radio are now being received full quieting at the repeater, so Echolink is now usable.
Repeater Etiquette: Manners
everyone should have when using a Repeater
The repeater is EchoLink enabled. Connect to AB2XN-R, or node number 427886. EchoLink is typically up weekday afternoons between approximately 1600 and 2200 local. Thanks to Dave AB2XN for maintaining the computer with EchoStation software and Frank KC2MRL for the link radio.
