LATEST NEWS
  • Echolink is back on the W1KFR 440 MHz repeater. Bill has worked hard to restore reliable service since the meltdown of the old tranceiver (guess it was too popular!) He has also received a new vanity node number: #3308. His repeater usually stays linked to the KG4PXG 2 meter repeater (Node 8345) in Dover Bluff a majority of the time, which in turn is frequently connected to other repeaters in both Dallas Georgia and Alabama, so you never know who you will meet! That also means that it is now easy for operators in the Camden County and North Florida area to participate in the Monday Night Fun Nets held at 8:20 PM via RF instead of direct Echolink connections. Join us this Monday!

  • George WA4GWB recently found out that Robert Ricker N3EAY has been moved to a medical care facility in Warner Robbins where he is making good progress but still requires full time care. We will post more info as we receive it.

  • Bring back the weekly KB4CC net? - With the recent addition of Echolink to the W1KFR 70cm repeater and planned links for the K4QHR and N6EMA 2m repeaters, there has been ongoing discussion of reviving the weekly KB4CC net, but changing the date and time to 1930 Monday evenings. We would conclude our net by 2015, then connect up to the KG4PXG repeater (#8345) for the "Monday Night Fun Net" at 2020. Comments and suggestions are appreciated

  • 2014 HAMFEST CALENDAR - Start making plans for next year's busy Hamfest schedule! The first local meet of the year was to be be 25-26 January in Jacksonville, but it was cancelled. The next big one, the Orlando Hamcation®, is rapidly approaching 7-9 February 2014, with The Charlotte Hamfest (Concord, NC) following 7-8 March. Check out the 2014 Event Calendar for a complete listing

  • Our VE Team leader Andy AA4XS has announced that amateur radio testing sessions will be moved back to the first Sunday of each month, immediately following our regular club meetings. Congratulations to all our new hams and to our dedicated VE team for continuing to run one of the most active testing groups in Southeast Georgia / Northeast Florida. For more information, see our VE Page
