Greetings Club Members,
July Monthly Meeting
Just want to remind you that we are having our July Monthly Meeting this Monday, July 8th at 7:00 PM at the American Legion Post 496, 1945 Mogadore Rd., Kent, OH. Our speaker will be Frank Tompkins W8EZT giving us the latest information on Fox Hunting. Fox Hunting is fun for all ages and a great part of our hobby. Come on out and hear this great presentation. As usual we will have our 50/50 and will be spending quality time with our fellow hams.
UHF Repeater
Ed K8IV, Rick K8CAV and I moved the UHF 444.575/449.575 repeater (NO PL Tone) to the new high ground site near Mantua today. We completed some initial testing around the area of the Headwaters Adventures Race and found the coverage outstanding. The testing was done with my ICOM T70 handheld and its “rubber ducky” antenna operated inside Rick’s jeep I also hit the repeater from Stow using 5 watts and my car mounted antenna . I am asking our members to try out this new repeater location and tell us what you think at the meeting on Monday.
I would like to thank Dave Dorson K8PKN the owner of the site, Ed K8IV for setting up the repeater and Rick K8CAV for making this project possible. It is a great addition to our resource list.
Jim, AC8NT
