6/4/2014 - News from the Skyline Radio Club Meeting held June 2, 2014

The Hells Kitchen Endurance Horse race, North of Gunnison was completed with help from several club members. Check points were manned by radio operators and all racers were accounted for. Thanks to those who helped.

The 146.660 repeater has been turned back on and seems to be working normal. It was turned off for much of the winter due to a temperature caused problem with the receiver. A remote base was operating in Manti to provide system access on the 146.660 frequency.

We plan on replacing the 30+ year old 146.660 GE repeater with a much newer Kenwood repeater this summer as soon as access allows.

Skyline Club Calendar:

10/23/2013Barry Bradley-WB7REL has let us know that if you are traveling I-15 (or anywhere in range) that the Beesting Repeater, 449.300 pl 88.5hz, is listening on the National Simplex call channel, 146.520 mhz.  This enables travelers and/or local operators to have expanded communication on the VHF call channel via this UHF repeater.  I always recommend having the 146.520 channel programmed into your radios and part of your scanning list.  You can see a map of the potential coverage area here.  Thanks Barry!

A reminder of the other ‘nets’ in our area:

 

Founded in 1952, the Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (RACES) is a public service that provides a reserve communications group within government agencies in times of extraordinary need. During periods of activation, RACES personnel are called upon to perform many tasks for the government agencies they serve. Although the exact nature of each activation will be different, the common thread is communications.

 

Utah HF Races Net - Odd numbered months......Jan, Mar, May, Jul, Sep, Nov...

The third Saturday, 8am, 3.920 mhz, LSB.  This net is conducted by the Utah Department of Homeland Security/Utah Department of Emergency Communication from the State Capitol in Salt Lake City.  All 29 Utah counties are polled for check-ins.  This HF net uses NO repeaters or Satellite assistance.  It is all "radio to radio" over hundreds of miles!

 

Utah VHF Races Net - Even numbered months.....Feb, Apr, Jun, Aug, Oct, Dec...

The third Thursday of the month, 8pm on a VHF, IRLP or Echolink repeater, node or link best for you.  This utilizes a sophisticated system of Public and Private Repeaters, VOIP (voice over internet protocol) and Reflectors to tie our state together via FM type communication during an emergency.  It is also managed by our Utah Department of Homeland Security/Utah Department of Emergency Communication from the State Capitol in Salt Lake City.  Again, all 29 Utah counties are polled.

 

Sevier Net - Thursday Nights, 6:30pm, 146.640/pl 100.  

 

Sinbad Desert Amateur Radio ClubVHF/UHF,Tuesday Nights, 8pm, Skyline/Sinbad System or a repeater near you, and their HF net, Saturdays, 8am, 3.828mhz, LSB. 

 

Utah VHF Society Net - Tuesday nights, 8pm, Intermountain Intertie, Frisco Pk/146.94, PL 100 or Levan/145.27, PL 103.5 or any repeater in the Intertie system.

   

Remember, if you connect to someone local on a Linked system, QSY (move; change channel) to a local/unlinked repeater if you can to free the linked system for other traffic.

 

 By the way, have you tried talking to your local friends on 146.520mhz Simplex?  This is the National Simplex call channel for 2 meters and I highly recommend you have it programmed in your Memory channels and scan it when you are traveling.
