PARA - CCAR Joint Announcement
PARA and CCAR have enjoyed many years of association where the PARA Paoli Repeater was either primary or backup repeater for CCAR since being organized. The PARA 146.940 MHz Repeater has operated from Paoli for well over 25 years thanks to the superb technical and administrative efforts of Dick K3ECV. With Dick K3ECV’s pending move from the Paoli area it became necessary for PARA to find a new location for the repeater. CCAR came forward and offered the CCDES facilities.
Discussions were held between the two organizations to establish a formal agreement where both organizations could operate together in a mutually beneficial relationship and yet maintain their independence.
Details of the agreement will be made available to members of each organization through their respective newsletters and membership meetings.
PARA encourages members in Chester County to become members of CCAR and participate in their activities. CCAR encourages its members to join and support the PARA organization. Both organizations look forward to a long and productive relationship.
You will also notice new call letters, W3EOC, on the 146.940 MHz frequency. W3EOC are the club call letters of CCAR; "EOC" indicating "Emergency Operations Center".
This announcement was jointly released by...
Gene K3DSM, PARA President,
Mark KA3VTM, Immediate Past PARA President, and
Vern KC3XL, Chester County Emergency Coordinator.
CCAR also provides public service communications for local civic organizations during events, these events provide an opportunity to train CCAR radio operators for emergency communications.
