MARC loaned HARC a vhf repeater with an Allstar module. It was installed recently, and was connected to the internet last week, enabling MARC members to participate and chat to the Durban guys as our repeaters are now linked to the loaned MARC repeater on 145.625MHz.
At yesterday’s meeting it was decided to do away with our Sunday morning bulletins, and join in to the HARC morning bulletin instead at 07h45 on Sunday mornings.
We also inspected the room offered by Lynwood Club for storage of our bits and bobs.
It was great being to join the HARC Sunday bulletin this morning, and also great to be able to chat to the HARC members using our own repeaters. Some fine tuning of the audio settings will still need to be done, and the HARC members will need to get used to the “tinny” sound associated to the narrow deviation or 12.5kHz, which should be used on all repeaters according to legislation.
