New Repeater for TARC

Dave Baxter, W5KPZ, and the East Texas Amateur Radio Society have graciously donated their 146.96 repeater to the Tyler Amateur Radio Club. The club has moved it to a new site in Southwest Tyler. It’s on the air with a negative offset and 136.5 Hz. CTCSS tone for access. Your repeater committee will come to you with more information at the next club meeting.

Thanks, Dave!

City of Tyler Warning Siren test

The Tyler Police Department has asked us to help with the monthly test of the Outdoor Warning System. These tests are performed at 11:00 AM on the first Tuesday of the month. The next test is Tuesday, September 2nd

Pick a siren location, and let Rick Hall know. A net will be started shortly before 11:00 on the 147.000 repeater, and you can check in there. After the test, net control will poll the participants to be sure the siren sounded. A page describing the system and the testing protocol is here. And a Map of siren locations is here. See you on the radio!
