Field Day 2024

We will meet at the club house at 9:00 am on Saturday to put up the antennas and set up the operating positions.  The contest will start at 2:00 pm for us, and go until 2:00 pm on Sunday.  Bring your own equipment and antenna, and feedline, and if you plan on staying over night, bring your own cot and bedding, and a snack if you need to eat something after hours.  The address for the club house is 2010 Placid Lakes Blvd, Placid Lakes.  George will bring his "pack rat" which will reach 90 feet in the air.  Trying to get an
inverted V antenna with ladder line on that if we can find the one we used last year. Roger k2cp

We have a new page on this site called "Be Prepared!". There will be a new monthly meeting presentation on non-radio emergency preparedness with available items to help you with preparing for disaster. The page can be found HERE.

Rick, K4FY reported we sold 90 admission tickets to our Sebring Hamfest 2024. Thanks to everyone that attended and offered their time to make the event a success!

----------

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.
