The Tuscaloosa Amateur Radio Club provides the above “open” repeaters for your use. Please use them to enjoy our hobby and communicate with your fellow hams. When doing so it is suggested you exercise proper radio “etiquette” and be sensitive to other users right to use them as well.
The West Alabama Emergency Net meets every Sunday Night at 8:30 PM on 146.820 and 443.825. Please join TARC as we would like to have you check into the WAEN. We look forward to hearing you.
The D-Star System is up for your use. If you have not been involved in D-star, educate your self on this mode of operation as it offers many new things. A “gate way” is attached to this system and is linked into the “Alabama State D-Star Net” on Tuesday nights at 8:30 PM. This provides a test of communications through out the state as well as North Flordia and Southern Mississippi. Consider getting on D-Star and you will find out the exciting things this mode offers.
As TARC supports these repeaters, donations are welcome. If you are not a member of TARC, we would like to have you as a member or if you use our repeaters, consider a donation so that we can continue to provide open repeaters for regular Amateur use. Contributions can be made at any time to our Club Treasurer, Tim Martin, at 11473 April Sound Drive; Northport, AL 35475.
