On Saturday morning, September 26, the new 220 mhz Spectra repeater on Caesars Head (224.140) was put on an Arcom RC210 controller. It has now the capability of linking to the 442.400 repeater when needed and the WARNS system for SKYWARN WX warnings. The repeater has been on the internal controller for a while since the repeater was installed.

The Motorola MTR2000 UHF on 442.400 was installed Wednesday evening, November 15th on Caesars Head. The 6 meter link is disconnected, but will be connected at a latter time when more time is available. The link to the 2 meter will be operational for the net on Tuesday.

We would Like to thank the 12 members that participated in the South Carolina Gridx drill on Wednesday, November 15th with the Pickens County Emergency Management Agency (EOC) and South Carolina ARES. Pickens was one of the 6 counties that activated their EOC, and 24 South Carolina Counties participated in some fashion. I think we all learned a lot, and this will be a topic of discussion at our next monthly meeting.

An email was forwarded to me this morning that was originally from Denise Kwiatek, Director of the Pickens County Emergency Management (EOC). She provided a link to an article that was published in the Duke Energy illumination Magazine about Amateur Radio. The article also highlight's some of what we do for the Pickens County EOC and also with Duke Energy and the Oconee County EOC in the every two year graded exercise that is required by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for the Duke Energy Oconee Nuclear Station.
The article why ham radio maintains its essential appeal can be read by clicking on the link, while I figure out a way to post articles like this directly on our website.
I'm open to any suggestions...such as a new category that provides links to the original stories and/or to pages stored on our website. Lots of things to consider, such as copyrights, etc.
