Next Portable Radio Session with Jay
Our last session was spent working our way through the menus of our HTs to manually set frequencies and CTCSS tones, and reviewing the standard offsets for repeaters. The CTCSS tones “wake up the repeater” and also provide some separation between groups using the same frequency.
During our August session, there will be a review of manually setting frequencies and CTCSS tones. Then we will get into how to use Winlink for sending text and email messages via radio and computer.
Next get-together date: Thursday, August 30th, 2:00-4:00pm
Location: Siuslaw Valley Fire and Rescue building, 2nd floor room, 2625 US-101, Florence https://goo.gl/maps/U1zynEZrxp82
