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 .

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.


New Years Eve (Antenna) Party Redux

Hanging the loop

On 12/31/2016, in the midst of all the holiday confusion, the weather was nice enough to perform the rest of the needed antenna work at the Red Cross.  We placed 4 Arrow J-Pole antennas and a 5th support mast as well as an approximately 300' wire loop that will be tuned with an SGC-235 Remote Tuner.  

NEW YEAR'S EVE (Antenna) PARTY 12/31/16

Taking advantage of temperatures in the 40s on the last day of 2016, W9DUA Station Trustee, Dwayne Terry KA9KQH led a team of volunteers in installing a 300' HF loop and four dual-band J-Poles at the SVRC Club station.

Thank you to all who participated!
