RCARC March Meeting and Repeater Vote Results

Hello everyone
On Thursday 3/12/15 at the RCARC meeting / SKYWARN training, the members present voted to buy 2 new Yeasu repeaters while there was a significant price discount by Yeasu. Cliff KD4GT is ordering the repeaters. These repeaters will be the primary KE4RX machines when they are installed and the old repeaters will serve as backups in case one goes down. The repeaters will cost $1000 which is about 1/4 of the total RCARC treasury. Several members have voluntarily offered special repeater donations to help offset the cost by the club. Although it is not a requirement, anyone else who wants, and is able to make a special contribution may do so by simply mailing a check to RCARC PO Box 1104, Kingston, TN. 37763. Don’t forget that RCARC is a 501c3 charitable organization. Hopefully soon RCARC will have 2 new digital/analog repeaters on the air. 147.015 (pl 110.9) 443.976 (pl 110.9)

The next RCARC meeting will be on Thursday April 9th, at 7:00 PM in the Roane County Rescue Squad building conference room. Talk in is on 147.015 (pl 110.9)

C-ya there.
