FM38 was well represented at the 2005 Dayton Hamfest (author included). The weather was great and everyone had a good time!

N9DII brought to my attention that according to an ARRL article posted June 10, Dayton Hamvention attendance was up by 542 over last year. The article cited a total attendance of 20,411 as compared to 19,869 in 2004. This is rather surprising given all the talk about the declining number of licensed amateur radio stations.

W9WK Repeater on 146.67 will be moving to 147.165 +

Author: John Flanagan - Published 2005-02-22 21:46 - (12136 Reads)
The Milwaukee/Waukesha ARES repeater frequency will change from 146.67 Mhz to 147.165 Mhz. This repeater frequency change is expected to occur on the weekend of March 5th and 6th 2005. The repeater's tone will remain the same 127.3 Hz CTCSS.

There may be a period of time that the system may be partially reprogrammed due to site access issues, and during this transition time the system may have other than usual receive coverage, so your patience is requested.

FM38 Repeater Update

Author: Vladamier - Published 2005-01-07 02:52 - (5222 Reads)
Hi Gang, been a while since I've sent any repeater updates. 2004 was a busy year with work and house projects taking precedence over repeater adventures. Not that we didn't do a few things such as;

  • Built and installed a new repeater in Baraboo. Took a few trips to iron out a failed preamp and other bugs but it is working great now.
  • Installed a new link beam and 250' of 7/8 line at our North receive site.
  • Replaced/upgraded the repeater antenna at Fond du Lac. (Pictures on FM38.org)
  • Various service calls by myself, Bob N9GMT and Dave KA9FUR to fix busted/melted/worn out items :-)

Hopefully we will get a few more things done this year such as;

  1. Build and install a new repeater in Rockford, IL
  2. Move the Princeton 444.950 system from it's current 70 ft.ham tower to a 400 ft. commercial site north of Ripon.
  3. Add a voter and remote receive site to the Baraboo 444.500 system.
  4. Upgrade several Milwaukee remote receive sites with cans and preamps.
  5. Install a new amplifier at the Fond du Lac 444.600 system.
  6. Lots more behind the scenes re vamping projects.
