Merry Christmas

We would like to thank those that came to play "What Do You Know" on the 147.520 Simplex. Those that came and played had a good time and won the prizes worth dollars.

Derrel Grapperdorf (KE7LUX) Won the grand prize, a pair of UB613K SLA 6V 1.3Ah Batteries.

All the other contestants won a HotHands hand warmer 2 pack that lasts up to 10 hours

Congratulations to all those who won.

We will not be holding the net for the next two weeks. Our nets will resume on Jan 7th, 2016, hopefully on the 146.700 repeater. Will let you know a little farther ahead of time if there is a change.

From all of us from the West Valley City Amateur Radio Communications Committee, We wish you all 73s and Happy Holidays. We will see you next year.

Due to some conflicts with the repeater at 146.700 our net will be moved to 147.52 Simplex because the repeater is down.

We will still hold the net at the same time. For those using a HT for the net make sure you have a clear view to Station 74. The Station is near the WVC Family Fitness Center and Centennial Park.

Map to Station 74

See you all there,

Battery Storage Calculator

This is the Battery Calculator that I created in Google Sheets.  I talked a little about this during our NET.  Please let me know if you see any mistakes.

Communications NET

Our communications net is held every Thursday evening at 8:00 p.m. using the 146.700 Mhz repeater, which has a negative offset and a 100 hz tone.  Amateur radio operators in West Valley City and friends are invited to join us on the air for check-ins, training, and discussion.

Our group is organized as a club for the purposes of:
  1. Being prepared for emergency communication. 
  2. Promoting radio as a hobby.
  3. Providing service to the community by assisting with special communication services.
