THE NEXT UCARA NET WILL BE THIS THURSDAY EVENING, (JANUARY 12, 2017) AT 8:00 PM ON THE K4LNS REPEATER, 147.270 MHZ, POSITIVE OFFSET UP 600. THE BACKUP WILL BE SIMPLEX ON 146.550 MHZ. THE NET WILL BE CALLED  BY  JOHN  ( WB4IXU ) WITH  KEN  ( W3GFM ) AS BACKUP.

( PLEASE READ ABOUT CHANGES TO THE REPEATER SYSTEM BELOW )

 

THE PL TONES  (ENCODE/DECODE)  ARE ACTIVE ON THE REPEATER. THE PL TONES ARE SET AT (88.5). THE REPEATER IS OPERATING IN DIGITAL AS WELL AS STANDARD FM MODE. IT WOULD BE BEST TO SET A MEMORY POSITION FOR THIS REPEATER AND SET YOUR CTCSS RECEIVE AND TRANSMIT TO THE 88.5 PL FREQUENCY. THE REASON FOR THIS IS THAT IF YOU DO NOT HAVE FUSION DIGITAL THEN THIS WILL PREVENT HAVING TO LISTEN TO THE DIGITAL TRANSMISSION STREAM, IT WILL BE BLOCKED.

THE REPEATER IS OPERATING IN A LINKED NETWORK COVERING SEVERAL STATES AND OTHER REPEATERS ON 2 METER AS WELL AS 70 CM AND 1.25 METER MIGHT BE A POSSIBILITY. WHEN YOU END YOUR TRANSMISSION ALLOW THE REPEATER TO COMPLETELY DROP IT’S CARRIER, THEN WAIT AT LEAST TWO SECONDS BEFORE THE NEXT PARTY TRANSMITS. IF WE ALL PRACTICE THESE RULES WE WILL HAVE A GREAT TIME AND A LOT OF FUN QSO’S ON THE NETWORK.

 

 

THE NEXT UCARA MEETING WILL BE THURSDAY EVENING  (FEBRUARY 02, 2017), STARTING AT 7:00 PM LOCAL TIME.   MEETING WILL BE AT CLARENCE’S DRIVE-IN, LOCATED AT 4021 UNICOI DRIVE   UNICOI, TN  37692  PHONE  423-743-7200.  ANYONE INTERESTED IN AMATEUR RADIO OR INTERESTED IN BECOMING A LICENSED OPERATOR IS WELCOME AT THE EVENING MEETINGS.

THERE WILL BE NO UCARA NET ON OUR MEETING NIGHT, THURSDAY (02/02/2017).  HOPE TO SEE EVERYONE ON OUR NEXT UCARA NET ON FEBRUARY 09, 2017
