Now a 501c3 organization, we are an ARRL affiliated club located in Norfolk,NebraskaServing the Northeast Nebraska area we operate two voice repeaters. Our two meter repeater operates on 146.73- (callsign WØOFK)and is located on a 400 Ft tower east of town. It is a Yaesu Fusion repeater capable of analog and digital (C4FM) voice.  It is connected to the internet via Wires-X system.  We also have a 70 cm repeater that operates on 444.250+ (callsign WØOFK). An APRS Digipeater is on the air under the call of WØOFK-4. We are involved with multiple aspects of Amateur Radio, providing classes, sponsor test sessions, have operating events throughout the year, provide training to the Boy Scouts, and support the local community with communications as needed.Weekly nets on the 146.73- repeater are every Monday night at 7:30 pm local time.
