December Radio Prize

December is our final club meeting for the year and as always we hold elections for club officers, showoff homebrew projects and have our Pre-Christmas radio raffle.  

If you would like to serve as an officer, please be at the meeting and give a short speech to the members.

Bring your homebrew project in and show off your creativity.  These have always been helpful to many members of our club and who knows what someone else will create because of your idea.

This year we will raffle a Yeasu FTM 3200 DR/DE Digital that can be used with our new repeaters plus a Wouxun-9D dual band with crossband repeat.  Tickets are two for $5.00 or five for $10.00.

There will be no ARES Net this week but I want to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving.

Repeater Update

This information is provided by Alan Malan (KB7YSP)

The 2m repeater on 147.04 with a tone of 123 is now C4FM capable.
You can use your Yaesu fusion radio with the 04 repeater and / or use 
your regular FM radio with the same repeater.
Give it a try and check out the capabilities.
Do some experimenting.
But above all, have some fun with it.
You will notice there is no courtesy tone, or hourly announcements.
Those will come later.

Just FYI:
Other news at the antelope island repeater site that the sheriffs 
office let's us use.
The sheriff's office has installed new solar panels and a new generator.
There is still work going on with that project but it's looking good.
Thanks,
