Trustee

The SVRC has a fairly broad array of amateur radio equipment from HF to UHF, Base station to mobile. From our club station we can operate a vast array of modes on different bands and we are looking into ways to expand these capabilities..

Accourding to the club constitution and bylaws, "The Trustee shall control and supervise the operation of all Club owned communication equipment."  The requirement is to hold a General Class license or higher.  The Station Trustee acts as or delegates control operator responsibilities for the club callsign W9DUA .

The Hex Beam is finally operational!

W9DUA Hex Beam

The Hex Beam is in place and operational!  After months of planning and organizing, the Hex Beam was pressed into service for the VHF contest on Saturday, June 8, 2019.  The official antenna crew under the direction of senior club members, hauled heavy steel, concrete, and antenna  components up to the Red Cross building roof in several stages.  We now have extra directional capability for HF 20 meters and up – including 6 meters.  This unique antenna certainly gives our club location a distinctive visual footprint with the upside-down umbrella design.

Fusion Repeater Interference Update!

Most are aware of the interference issues we have had on the 443.0 Mhz Fusion repeater.  It took us a while but we identified the biggest source of the interference as a commercial repeater.  Several solutions were discussed. On, Monday 6/11/2018 a notch filter providing about 35Db of attenuation at the offending frequency was installed.

Upated:W9DUA D-Star Repeater Issues Fixed

Updated: The issues with the W9DUA DStar repeater have been repaired.  A new network switch as been installed restoring the connectivity.  The club would like to formally thank N9PUZ for the previous router that had been in service for about 7 years.  This location is a harsh environment during the summers.  the new router is rated for high temperatures.

W9DUA Fusion Repeater Up and Running in Test Mode

On January 7, 2017 the W9DUA Fusion repeater was put online, currently the antenna is only about 50' up and is only a J-Pole.  The repeater is putting out 20 watts of power.  The Red Cross roof is not the permanent home of this repeater.  

 

If you wish to try this machine, the frequency is 443.000+ (94.8 pl).  It is setup in Auto/Auto mode.  This means if you come in on analog FM then the repeater will output Analog FM.  If you come in on C4FM Fusion mode, that is what the machine will output.
