Athens Amateur Radio Club patchAARC Repeater

K5EPH 147.22 CTCSS 136.5

Our repeater, K5EPH, now requires CTCSS tone access of 136.5. For those without tone generators in their radios, you may dial 11 to temporarily disable the tone access. This step was taken to reduce interference, not to exclude anyone! All licensed hams are welcome.

Dues Due

May 2014 - April 2015 dues are now payable to the treasurer.

Monday Night Net

Monday night at 8 PM on the K5EPH Repeater. All licensed hams are welcome and encouraged to check in.

3rd Saturday meeting at 9:00 am at the Athens Cafe, 607 East Tyler Street (in the shopping center). May want to come at 8:00 am and have breakfast before meeting.
