Net / Repeaters
Last Updated 9/19/2015

Our Weekly Club Net is on Tusday evenings at 7:00pm.  The net no longer conducts a roll call.  The net is followed by the combined Saint Clair County Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) and Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (RACES) Net. The ARES/RACES net is a Directed Net and is normally conducted by Gene Kraemer, WA9TZL.

The club maintains 4 open repeaters: 147.120+ (linked with 442.275+)  / 224.120- / 444.625+ with 127.3 pl.

The repeaters are located on Turkey Hill located just outside of Belleville, IL.  The facilities for the repeaters are furnished to us by SAVE .  They provide us a location for the repeaters, and a building to house our equipment.

The Club would like to extend a special thanks to Tom W9TJ, Curtis W5DTR and the other club members for keeping these repeaters up and running. Tom has spent many years doing an excellent job, upgrading and maintaining our repeater systems. Curtis makes the frequent trips to the repeater site to keep it in working condition. THANKS!

Repeater Pictures

View of the Repeater Antenna tower at the SAVE site, looking Northwest.

These two cabinets contain the three K9GXU repeaters.

For the technical crew, here is the backside of the cabinet.

This cabinet holds the Power Supply for the 70cm Repeater,
the batteries (See next picture) and the Charger.

These are two deep cycle marine batteries with a low voltage cutout
circuit that is designed to keep the 2m transmitter powered
for up to 24 hours of transmit time.
