New 440 Repeater

Our new CCARC 440 Repeater is up and running. Frequency: 444.050, Tone: 136.5, Offset: 5.000, Offset direction: Positive (+). This repeater has Digital Operation with Yeasu equipped radios and Analog operation with all radios. At present the repeater is operating on low power of 20 W. Please check it out and use it.

 

Additional Note:

There is no courtesy tone or carrier that you key up when you hit your push to talk.

It might be confusing because you can’t hear that you’ve gotten into the repeater.

For More Information

CCARC Vice-President Rich Casey, N5CSU, was guest on two recent HamRadioNow video podcasts hosted by Gary Pearce, KN4AQ.  Both shows include several mentions of the Cedar Creek ARC.

The first show is a remembrance of how Gary and Rich met on the air fifty years ago as newly licensed hams. They discuss the early days of the FM mode in Chicago; this is quite an introduction to how ham radio used to be!

In part two, Rich and Gary discuss the Internet and many tools that will be useful to hams both new and old.

Rich’s blog Casey’s Place adds a little background on both shows, and includes links to all the tools mentioned in the second show.

We’ve added several more resources for our new hams and those members planning to upgrade their license class; check them out on our Welcome page.

CCARC YouTube Channel

The Cedar Creek ARC now has its own YouTube channel, thanks to work by George, W5BRG, and Ed, K8MKN!  We’ll post our Skype interviews (if OK by our guest speaker) and other video tidbits.
