KY4ARC was formed in February
2006. Like most clubs it has seen
its membership fluctuate over the
years. When the hobby first went to
the "no code tech" licensing system
in the early ‘90's there was a
drastic increase in the number of
folks entering the hobby. For a
while, the numbers have dwindled -
we think in large part due to the
widespread use of cell phones and
other communication devices.
However, recently, we now see a
renewed interest in the hobby with
the move away from Morse Code
Our current membership is 17,
as of 20160507.
KY4ARC owns and maintains a
repeater which operates on frequency
147.225 Mcs. with a positive offset
and a 127.3 cps tone. Located,
Paintsville, Kentucky. This repeater
is part of the Eastern Kentucky
Repeater Linked System. You can see
the listing at http://www.qsl.net/ekrn/.
EchoLink node number 321424 operates
on this system under KY4ARC call
(KY4ARC-R). For info go to http://www.echolink.org/.

Digital Weather Receiver
