Repeater News:
The Club's Bellville repeaters have been reconfigured.  The UHF repeater is now C4FM digital only, and the VHF repeater is now FM Analog only.  However, the repeaters are interconnected so analog traffic on VHF will be heard on digital UHF, and vice-versa.  Please note that if you are using UHF digital, the DG-ID must be set to 00 for transmit and receive.

President:           Gary Baldwin, KF5ZRT

Vice-President:  Ray Chislett, W5RAC

Sec/Tres:             Kathy Croker, KB5ITB

W5SFA Weekly VHF Net: 

The Stephen F. Austin Radio Club weekly net meets every Tuesday at 7:00 PM on the Club's Bellville VHF repeater (analog FM) or the UHF repeater (C4FM digital).  See the REPEATERS link to the left for frequencies.
