MBARC News & Announcements

  • Zoom Meeting Jan 12 2021   Hi all,    Happy new year.    This is inviting you to the MBARC January Zoom meeting.  We are going to have a general meeting for MBARC this Tuesday evening over Zoom.  (see below)   We hope to make this another good general get together type of meeting.    The main subject for this meeting will be about using IRLP, which is part of the project that we started for the King Mt. repeater site.  We'll have a demonstration with Chris KC9AD in Arizona over the King Mt. repeater while on Zoom at the meeting.  We plan to have several IRLP nodes connected and show off how IRLP can be used to make very long distance contacts on VHF.    This should help people ...
