THREE-SEVEN-TEN ! A Two Meter Activity Initiative-A way to bring more activity to the RRC 146.910 Club Repeater was introduced. by Rich Ahrens, W3WJC, Editor of the RRC Bulletin and former Club President. The thought is to turn on your 2-Meter transceiver at 3 PM, 7 PM and 10 PM. Identify your station and see if anyone comes back and wants to shoot the breeze. No net control, just some informal conversation. Let us try this and see if we can pep up activity on the Reading Radio Club repeater. The CTCSS is 131.8 MHz.
