Bald Mountain – Pittsburg County Repeater Operational
The permanent 145.210 and 442.400 repeaters are now on air from Bald Mountain, the highest point in Pittsburg County. You can hit them both with 5 watts from Durant (60 miles from the tower) and sound local. Both repeaters are set at 60 watts. I’ve also included pics from when the antennas were installed last year. These will be an excellent addition to SE Oklahoma and will expand when other sites go online. I want to thank everyone involved in this project, without your help, this would not have happened.
TARC Grant Project
A new ARRL Foundation Club Grants program, funded by a grant from Amateur Radio Digital Communications (ARDC), will make $500,000 available to radio clubs.

Clubs historically have recruited, licensed, and trained new radio amateurs and have provided the community setting for radio amateurs to continue their education and training. The new Club Grants program will help clubs more easily provide […]
