With a letter from the IRS received earlier this week, I am happy to announce to our membership that the Red River Valley ARC is now 501(c)3 charity. Any donations are now tax-deductible and if you receive a donation for the club, please let Sandy or Jim know so they can get a donation receipt sent asap.
Thanks to everyone in the club for their support in this accomplishment!
Digital Communications Guide for Amateur Radio
Do you need a Fusion Radio to use our club repeaters? NO! We invite you to check out the Yaesu Website and choose a Retail outlet of your choice for a C4FM capable radio! The FT2R radios are now available. This system is fully compatible with all Yaesu Fusion Digital Radios as well as Analog Wide FM conventional radios that have PL tone capability. Don’t let this fool you! This is a fully automated Analog/Digital auto switching system! At this time the system is setup to receive and send Analog & C4FM Digital. UHF is Auto/Auto. VHF is set to Auto input/FM Output only so everyone can hear what is being said and can experience what a digital radio sounds like over an FM-wide receiver after conversion at the repeater site.
Listen in on our repeaters for weather reports. If you have a weather report for the National Weather Service in Ft. Worth, Tulsa or Shreveport, send it via the net or online using the Meteorological Phenomena Identification Near the Ground (mPING) Project
