Ken Ulrick, KB9YKU, became a silent key on Wednesday morning, April 15th. No plans for Ken's funeral or service have been announced yet. We will forward that information to all when it becomes available.
Ken was a member of the Fort Wayne Radio Club. He will be missed by all.
Fort Wayne Raio Club announces an open house this coming Saturday, April 18th, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, at the Robison Park Substation repeater shack. If you have ever wondered what a good repeater installation looks like, why not stop out and check it out for yourself. The Robison Park system has the FWRC 76 and 875 machines and the ACARTS 255 and 390 machines. It has been recently upgraded, so it is in top condition.
Talk in will be on the 146.76 (-) repeater. If you are on your way out, give us a shout and we will fill you in on the parking and mud situation, so you know where to park. We are just south of Red Line Honda on North Clinton. Watch for construction traffic at the substation, which is undergoing a huge revonation.
We hope to see you out there!
Best regards, Steve, W9SAN
In a departure from previously announced plans, the Fort Wayne Radio Club has adopted a 141.3 Hz continuous tone-coded squelch system (CTCSS) frequency for all its repeaters. The club previously planned to use a CTCSS frequency of 97.4 Hz but learned that some radios support 141.3 Hz but not 97.4 Hz.
The club is in the process of implementing CTCSS on its repeaters. The table below shows the status as of the date of this article.
|Repeater (MHz)||Repeater input CTCSS (Hz) & status||Repeater Output CTCSS (Hz) & status|
|444.875||141.3, required||141.3, present|
|146.76||141.3, optional||141.3, present|
