The 94 Repeater is BACK !!

It's BACK !!! Yes the KØPRO 94 repeater is back on the air! Full quieting signal reports from Joplin, Riverton and Galena were received so it's working great! Special thanks go out to PRO members Tyler KBØPQP, Steve N5SD, Ron KBØNRG and Phil KØPR for working on it and getting it back on the air!!

We will move the Wednesday night FM Net back over to the 94 so tune in and check in! If you are on the fringes of the coverage area please call in to the repeater for a signal report as there is usually someone monitoring!

It's great to hear the 94 back on the air !!

SEKARC In The Park

The August meeting of the Southeast Kansas Amateur Radio Club was held today in Lincoln Park. It was a beautiful day and we had 4 stations set up and on the air! The park was busy and the weather was cloudy and about 72 degrees. There was BBQ smoke in the air and we almost got some free Chicken Mary's chicken!

Thanks for coming out !!

SEKARC at the JARC Hamfest 2015

This past weekend was the annual Joplin Amateur Radio Club Hamfest. Once again JARC put on a fantastic show that provided thousands of shoppers, vendors everyone a great couple of days of ham radio swapping and shopping! The SEKARC sold pretty much all of it's donated gear for a very nice total proceed that will be donated to the club treasury!

Leon N3LRH had some gear from a ham in Fort Scott and did very well as he moved most of that equipment on to new owners. Joe WØMQY, Jack WDØCFH, Steve WDØDTS, Bill WBØLXZ and a few others and myself, Jeff KAØEGE were there and/or helped with the booth. I was about 30 seconds too late on my hunt to buy a good HF rig for a back up when it was sold right before I was about to offer.
