CURRENT NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS:

CLUB MEETINGS:

Monthly

Date/Time: The Highland Lakes Amateur Radio Club normally meets on the last Friday of the month at 1830 Hours local time. Quarterly, in January, April, July, and October the meeting is a potluck supper.

ARES session convenes immediately before the regular meeting, at 1800, EXCEPT when there is a potluck supper meeting.

Location: Marble Falls EMS station. 609 Industrial Boulevard, Marble Falls, TX  MAP

Special meeting notes

No meeting in December. January meeting will include a potluck dinner.

Weekly Net

We meet on the repeater (146.66 / tone 88.5) each Sunday night at 2030 hours local. It normally runs 15-20 minutes including a training topic, local ham news and ARES information. The digital net follows immediately thereafter.

Repeater status

The .66 machine (146.66 / tone 88.5) remains in its alternate location for testing. For now, we are using 145.290 (tone 114.8) — thanks to Chuck, KB5YKJ — as our primary repeater. That is his physical repeater which is located at our PR4 location.

Digital net

The digital net immediately follows the voice net. Frequency 145.550 FM, mode psk63. We exercise the use of FLdigi during that time.

Non-meetings

Monday mornings will find many area hams (club members and otherwise) at the El Charro Mexican Food Restaurant in Burnet, TX (block South of the traffic light at the 7-11).  We meet for breakfast and arrive around 7:30-8:00am.  All are welcome and the conversations at the table are guaranteed to be interesting.  Tall tales are allowed. Even the truth is accepted (grudgingly).  The group recently migrated from the Highlander but that’s a tale of its own.

 

WEBSITE CHANGES & ADDITIONS

Added a page on RMS Express via sound card

  1. For your consideration. I think the front page of the web site should have the club’s and member’s repeaters listed along with any local WinLink (PacLink) nodes and frequencies. Just my $.02 worth.

  2. I am retired and have time on my hands.I have just listened to a program
    on my local radio which included a vast amount of interest direct from Marble Falls..I emailed my station and they had a contact from Marble Falls giving me this link..

    • Hello Brian. Thanks for your note. Maybe you will make contact with one of our members on 20M. Interesting to hear of your proximity to Louis Varney as I too have a G5RV antenna design.
