The 728, 694, and 676 machines are 24/7 hard-linked by uhf. Thus, system coverage for car mobiles is from the high ground West of Osoyoos and South of Kelowna to that around Kootenay Lake/Nelson and South to Tonasket/Sherman Pass, including the entire Christina Lake valley. Some "hot spots" such as Osoyoos central and Omak on good days. Handheld coverage is, of course, more restricted.
We try to maintain a 2M net at 1900 PST Thursdays on the 2m network. Try us on 652 Simplex if the network's empty.
146.52 MHz simplex is also monitored in the area.
Meetings are held on the first Monday of each month at 7:00 PM in Grand Forks. All Amateur Radio Operators and those interested in Amateur Radio are most welcome.
please join us for an informal coffee break Saturday mornings at 10:00 AM at the Happy Days Restaurant in Grand Forks. - Just West of the Granby River Hwy 3 Bridge, kitty-corner from the now-vacant site of the Grand Forks Hotel. (shedding a tear here)
For more info, email our email connection Pete Snidal - snidey at telus.net or snailmail GFARC, PO Box 2276, Grand Forks, BC, V0H 1H0.
See you on 2!
Update! - APRS on Rod Dhu
This an APRS digipeater on Mt. Roderick Dhu. The 728 machine has been moved to Phoenix for better access (and hopefully about the same coverage!)
