Volunteers Needed for Salt Lake City Marathon

It looks like you can now sign up to volunteer for the Salt Lake City Marathon.  This is a great event for the first timers.  The vent is usually done by 1:00 PM and depending on your station you may be done earlier.  You can sign by going to http://saltlakecitymarathon.com/volunteer/.  We encourage everyone to participate in at least one event each year.  You will learn things at these events that you will learn no where else.

Thanks,

VE's Needed!

We have a testing session coming up this Saturday from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM.  We were going to be short one VE, however my daughter will be taking the test so I will not be able to grade her test so we will need two additional VE's.  This will be an ARRL sponsored testing session so you will need to be ARRL VE.  Let me know if you are available to help out.

Thanks,

Mat

NET IS MOVING THIS THURSDAY

We have tested out our new repeater and we feel things are sufficiently setup to move the Thursday Net to our new frequency.  So with that being said Thursday's net (January 24th 8:00 PM) will be held on 448.800 Mhz, negative offset 100 hz tone.  We will have someone on the old frequency just in case not everyone gets the message that we have moved.  In the mean time I would recommend that you try hit the repeater before the net to make sure your radio is properly configured. 

We thank the Salt Lake Count ARES for allowing us to use their
repeater the past couple of years.

Thanks,

Repeater Update

Just a quick update on the repeater.  The company that is installing the tower is still waiting on a part.  In the mean time I have installed the repeater at a temporary location that will allow it to be on 24/7.  I have been able to hit it as far as Draper.   Please give it a try and let me know of any issues you have with it.  Unless we find something wrong with it we are hoping to run Thursday's NET on it.  As a reminder the frequency is 448.80 Mhz, negative offset 100 hz tone.

Thanks,
