New Yaesu System Fusion Repeater

HARC is now operating a DR-1X repeater on our 145.190 VHF frequency. This was the first System Fusion repeater in Iowa. Read more about the complete line of System Fusion radios from Yaesu here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The system was installed on Friday, January 9, 2015 and is set to AMS mode on RX and Fixed FM mode on TX. We are receiving great signal reports from all over. We hope to hear you soon on one of our Monday night nets or just a rag-chew sometime in the future.

HARC operates a 2m repeater located three miles south of Perry on 145.190 Mhz, (-) PL tone of 114.8. This is in accordance with Iowa Repeater Council coordination. The club also maintains an Echolink node at KD0NEB-R or Node #710459. Join us each Monday evening at approximately 8:15 p.m. local time for the HARC Roundtable Discussion Net. We meet right after the Dallas County ARES Monday Night Net. See you there!

The club also operates a UHF repeater on 444.375 (+) PL Tone 151.4. This repeater is also a Yaesu System Fusion DR-1X and is currently located at approximately 100 ft. and has about a 30 mile range around Perry.

 

Club receives donation from Iowa RACES and Dept. of Homeland Security

HARC was recently the recipient of a new set of Bird Technologies Vari-Notch VHF Duplexers. The six cavity set was installed on Tuesday, November 26, 2013 at the repeater site. These duplexers are rated at 400 watts and allow for .300 KHz separation. This donation will allow for a broader range and lower loss of signal. A big thank you goes out to Tom Reis; N0VPR, Iowa RACES Officer, and the Iowa Department of Homeland Security for this donation.

Repeater Antenna: On May 15, 2013, the club installed itís own antenna system on the 300 ft. tower owned by the Dallas County E-911 board. The antenna is a DB-224E and it is located at approximately 250 ft. on the south leg of the tower. The tower space and building are provided by the Dallas County E-911 board through an agreement with Dallas County ARES and HARC. The leadership of HARC and Dallas County ARES would like to offer their thanks to the E-911 board for their support. We would also like to thank Jon Markres of Unplugged Wireless in Perry for his support.
