Repeater noise

At the  Dec 28 meeting of the board of directors meeting, it was stated that the noise on the repeater had returned sporadically. N1ZPO will monitor and if the noise starts continuously again, he will check the site, with the noise active.

N1ZPO asked that anyone that hears the noise, please text N1ZPO are inform him on what you are receiving. Thank you for your assistance. We hope to eliminate the problem permanently .

Barbara Leiden, N1UI - SK 1/9/2016

It is with deep regret that I pass this message along. As some of you are aware Barbara Leiden N1UI passed early this morning as the results of a terrible accidental fall in her home. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Rob, K1UI and his family. The officers and directors of BARC & I'm sure the entire membership share in the loss. We will pass along arrangement information when it becomes available.

Yaesu System Fusion Digital to be Installed on 146.955

Another mode option is coming to the 146.955, K1PBO repeater.  Yeasue's  "System Fusion" digital C4FM will be an option around late March if it ships as expected. 

This system will allow analog and digital (one at a time) to coexist  on the same pair.  So users with digital capability can utilize it and anayone without can use analog the analog operation will remain the same, and the digital does add some neat features.
