Repeater Directory Updated!

The online repeater directory has been updated as of April 1st, 2016.  And no, this is not an April Fool’s prank.

Your elected/appointed IRC staff will continue to work hard to provide you with timely updates to the directory as well as other aspects of this website.

If you find something missing or lacking, please send us a comment and we will respond as well as work to address the issue.

Thank you in advance for helping us make this (your) organization all that it can be.

New Year, New Website

Happy New Year!

Over the last few weeks, since the November meeting, we’ve been working diligently on an new and updated website.  While we are still working on things, we’ve achieved a level of stability and feel comfortable in taking the new site live.

We hope that you find the new site both easy to use and most especially useful.  If you have any suggestions, please feel free to drop us a comment.

Thank you!

Frequencies Wanted!

On some Amateur bands in many areas, there are few if any frequencies available upon which a new repeater can be coordinated without causing harmful interference.

Sometimes we discover that we have a repeater coordinated that has been inoperative for some time, and will not be placed back on the air. These frequencies need to be made available for new repeaters.

It is important that repeater operators who have inoperative repeaters be considerate of their fellow Amateurs by releasing unused frequencies. Please be honest and realistic about the likelihood of your repeater being placed back into operation. I am sure that we could grant more coordination’s if we knew about every unused frequency out there.

We realize that circumstances occur that interrupts the continuous operation of a repeater. If a repeater experiences technical problems, the best way to protect the coordination is to let us know what is going on. If we are aware of the situation, we will hold your coordination valid for a reasonable time, to permit repair or replacement of components.

We have no desire to de-coordinate repeaters when the operator is making a good faith effort to restore operation.

We do, however need to identify and make available frequencies, which are not going to be utilized in the reasonable future.
