The K0JEB-R node that was connected to the repeater we operate on (W1NLC/146.67) has moved to 147.06 (W1DX).

A new node K0JEB-L has been linked to 146.67.

Also, our previous Alternate Repeater (W1NLC/146.97) has been transitioned to Digital. We will now operate 147.470 simplex as a backup frequency.



If you are stuck at home during this crisis, don’t forget to join us on the air!
