We have moved the Nets over to the 145.210, -0.6 Offset PL 71.9 it’s official!!!!
Catch us on the 145.210 N2CNY Repeater from now on for the Nets.
Well for those of you that haven’t heard or haven’t been trying out the good old 145.210 -0.6 Offset PL 71.9, it’s back on the Air!!!
The station / repeater was put back on the air the 19th of August 2018 and has been in the early testing stages and final modifications / tweaks for the entire time. Things are looking good for the repeater and there have been several previous users heard on it and some new voices too. All in all things are going well and we expect to be moving the Nets back to the 145.210 very soon. Should be within the next few weeks. We will post something as soon as we have a date set for the cut-over.
We do have a report that as far as just south of Cooperstown our Repeater has been heard.
Stay tuned for further updates from the CNYARA.
Save the date for Saturday August 25th, 2018 for the ROC City Net and Hamfest.
Free admission. Setup is at 6 am and gates open at 7 am. Come to swap and sell and win and eat. Door prizes, raffles and food from vendors and the restaurant on site. Looks like great fun and you can even bring a table to sell your own items.

With the summer half over and things being what they are in California, which ARES, RACES and other Amateur Radio groups assisting and responding to the tragedy, it was brought to my attention that maybe some helpful information should be put out there. The following website has some great information about putting together a Go kit and using Solar for QSO’s from Finland to Italy. So take a look at some of his information and maybe it will inspire you to build a kit for hiking, survival, emergency preparedness, or even ARES or RACES assistance, or even for just having some Field Day fun.
Enjoy the site from OH8STN and what he has to provide.
