To the Golden Spike Amateur Radio Club, GSARC
We are a group of Amateur Radio Operators (HAMS) serving Box Elder County and the surrounding areas
Box Elder County Simplex - 146.480
Repeater work - October 2023
There will be a fair bit of repeater work happening over the next few weeks.
A trip is being planned to repair the damaged repeaters at the 147.380 Dunn Peak site. General inspection, re-neutralization of the signal paths, and installation of isolators on both the VHF and UHF radios to prevent future damage due to lightning strikes and high SWR.
Once that project is complete, we will be servicing the feedlines and antenna at the 147.220 Riverside site following lightning damage earlier in the year. At a minimum the feedline will be replaced and new lighting protection installed. During the winter we may find a moment to start the overhaul in the building.
K7UB-R Echolink node operational! (645522)
The node is still living in the shed at the home of KG7RDR. Due to a failing radio it has a bit of a buzz right now. The node will be moved to the Riverside repeater during the overhaul when it happens.
Club Meeting - 9 December @ 10:00
Bear River City Office AA7TR
Topic: Repeaters, and what to do when they are not by KG7RDR.
We will be discussing repeater construction, usage, and best practices along with what to do when they aren't working properly. Please bring your favorite handheld with you for practice.
