Repeater System Update 10/8/2017

Hi everyone its been a while... I was able to get up to Eagle Ridge and install the RM-50A-BB battery supply along with a new 7 foot free standing rack donated by WA6EWV from TARA Club. John KD7NHC provided me a couple extra hands and moral support that day!

The new rack and shelf now hold the 200 amps of reserve power to run the two fusion repeaters at Eagle Ridge should the generator fail. Thank you to both Lyon County and the TARA clubs for supporting CARS!!

Cheers and stay Safe! 

More updates 10/8/2017

We can't release details yet but A NEW SYSTEM will be online soon for testing. Once we see how it works out well let everyone know what the deal and coverage is!! 

Meanwhile the 442.125 repeater is down for an indefinite amount of time due to the duplexer and or antenna at the site failing, and taking out the PA deck too. I/We at CARS do not have the money to replace these items right now. Without community support we can not continue to provide the service to that area at this time. 

The Echolink should be back online soon as KE6QK rewires the network at the site, please keep checking back. 

We don’t suggest you update your radios with the new YAESU firmware at this time. It is still unstable and not well tested. We will make a post here when we feel it is safe to upgrade. The new DGID features will not be present on the CARS network as we will not use the DR2x in a digital only mode. ANALOG is still important for reliable communications in Nevada.

 Equipment upgrades, insurance, legal fees, the purchase of and associated maintenance material cost all come from YOUR public donation. YOUR charitable contribution is CRUTIAL to the upkeep and continued success of these emergency radio networks. PLEASE make a donation today that may also be tax deductible (CARS is a 501C7 non-profit corporation)! Contact us for receiving a formal contribution letter for your sizable donation. Any and all contributions are welcome and greatly needed!

-Thank You K5BLS
