EchoLink is back up at it’s new home…

Thanks KE5OG for hosting the equipment. And, thanks to N5HYD who loaned the club the radio to make it work in the first place as well as W5RHN who provided the UHF beam.

New Alpine Frequency!

Alpine has a new frequency to access the club’s repeater system. It is an odd configuration and is only in test mode at this time, but as we work out the details, we hope we can make it permanent.
The frequency is 446.150 SIMPLEX with 146.2 PL tone. Do note, as you try to program your radios for this frequency, most modern radios may try to use an offset transmit frequency for 446.150. You will likely have to force the SIMPLEX operation.  FULL STORY HERE
