Amateur Radio area on the web

I’ve had the link in the “Links” section for a while, but thought I would post it here for good measure:

Reddit is a popular internet site and it has it’s share of silly stuff, but there are good things, too. This section is only one small part.

Highly recommended, especially if you want to see younger people involved in the hobby.

The repeater is back!

The DCARC repeater (147.76-) antenna is now at the 200′ level, its normal operating height.  The antenna had been temporarily located on top of the equipment building. Now it’s performance is greatly improved.

Post any reception reports, questions, or problems here.

Thanks to Skyler, John, Ken, and anyone else I should mention for making this happen.

Here’s a list of area repeaters.
