A huge thank you to all the stations tri-state area wide that participated in our recent test at Huntington Hospital.
Beta testing of the NOAA weather radio link on 147.210 Huntington is complete. You will hear the weekly Wednesday 11:00AM test from the National Weather Service. If a SAME alert is acivated for Nassau or Suffolk Counties, this transmission will be rebroadcast on 147.210, 448.425, and Echolink node 436398-WR2ABA-R.
The new Yaesu System Fusion Repeater in Hauppauge (448.675/114.8) continues to receive high marks for it's new capabilities. The addition of the new digital repeater opens up a world of new capabilities for the club. Now hams can access the Fusion's multitude of interest specific rooms. Working through WIRES-X the WR2ABA repeater makes it easier than ever to connect with hams across the globe. Just one more reason for LARC members to try System Fusion ASAP!
The new 70cm Huntington repeater (448.425/114.8) brings LARC to those hams with only 440 transceivers. The 440 machine is linked with .210, so no one will miss out on any of the ham action. Don't forget that Echolink is a free App and is also linked with the 147.210/448.425 combo (WR2ABA-R 436398).
Follow along as Steve, N2PQJ, makes working FT8 easy!
