Yaesu System Fucion Repeater

The Clubs 70cm repeater is back on the air.

Tune you radios to 444.45 + to try out our new repeater.

This repeater is an C4FM Yaesu System Fusion machine so you can use Digital or FM to comunicate though it.   For FM our PL is 103.5 and if you have a non C4FM radio then make sure you turn Encode and Decode both on.  If you  dont turn on the decode you will hear the loud digital signal.  If you do have a C4FM radio then leave your leave your radio on "auto" so that you can hear digital and FM transmission.

6-Meter Recordings

SCARC member N3LL, Bob Carnahan, put together a small collection of recordings made of 6-meter skip activities in which DX stations running as little as 30-watts can be heard. Most of the recordings are contacts between the club's station, W3KWH, and others; however, Bob includes one DX contact made from his home running only 100-watts and using a par omni loop antenna design.

The recordings will stream at any connection speed and can be listened to here.
