The Sebring SARNet repeater is now officially connected to SARNet. The repeater is at 442.900 MHz with a + offset and a PL tone of 100.0 Hz. If you want to learn more about Florida SARNET Group go to www.sarnetfl.com . This repeater is now connected to approximately 40 repeaters around the state, so if you use it remember to be considerate and keep your transmissions short. A whole lot of people could be listening to you. The Sebring repeater is going to help fill a big coverage gap in the middle of the state. It will be instrumental for emergency communications in disaster situations. Highlands County now has excellent local coverage utilizing the 147.045/442.035 linked repeaters, regional coverage using the NI4CE analog/NXDN system and state-wide coverage through SARNet. We also have the Wires-X repeater on 442.7375 which I try to keep linked to America-Link. Stand by for more to come. -KW4G

10 meter net at 8:00 pm on 28.400usb on the last Wednesday of every month.

The monthly Club meeting via ZOOM address has moved. You can find the new address and other info HERE.

----------

The Fusion repeater is on 442.7375 with a standard +5 MHz offset. It is set up for digital only, so a person needs a Yaesu Fusion capable radio to use it. The digital ID's are 00/00, so nothing special is required to access it. Right now, it is local only. Hopefully, we will soon have an internet connection and WIRES-X set up at the repeater site allowing full time access to WIRES-X Rooms.
