Superstition Amateur Radio Club

The Superstition Amateur Radio Club has something for everyone - whatever your amateur radio interests are, you will find someone in the club to exchange ideas with, learn from, and or teach someone something new. Whether you want to learn CW (Morse code) and work other continents. Build and tune your own antennas, climb mountains and talk to other people around the world with portable equipment with Summits On The Air (SOTA). How about helping others build an Amateur Radio Emergency Data Network using 2.4 GHz , 3.3 GHz and or 5.8 GHz microwave nodes here in Mesa and the surrounding communities. Not only is it a lot of fun to build, you will be able to help out in case of an emergency with the services that you can help provide.

You can even help out the National Weather Service get “eyes on the ground” for weather reporting with Skywarn. Or any number of other activities with the new digital modes of communications that we as Amateur Radio Operators have available to us. You will find there’s always someone that you can chat with while you are learning something new with your Amateur Radio License...

[ News From The Tech Committee ]

The repeaters have been replaced with Yaesu Fusion DR-2x machines. The repeaters were in our possession on Monday Night (10-29) and we had the repeaters bench tested and installed on the same night. Thanks to KB7KWK and N9EIV for assisting onsite, and K9ZSR and KD8PC for helping testing remotely. One of the more amusing parts of the night was trying to figure out why the link from Stone Castle to Usery was so noisy, as part of troubleshooting that, we re-aimed the Yagi link antenna. Funny thing is, the antenna actually had full quieting RX of the Stone Castle when pointed at South Mountain, instead of at the Stone Castle. Right now that antenna point approximately 30 degrees off azimuth from where you would expect it.
Currently, this is how the sites are configured. Since the repeaters have dual receivers, whatever one repeater hears and repeats, is heard by the other repeater, and that one transmits it also. The link Yagi antennas are now RX only antennas.
Also, with our current configuration FUSION is NOT linked between the repeaters, this will be addressed at another time.

A huge thanks goes out to all Tech Committee personnel for all their continued work on keeping everything running...

Thanks Again,
Tech Committee Chairman

Dale N7QJK and Douglas W7ADD, have been working on the changes on the SuperFest Committees email server and moved it over to the club’s Google App account. This will make the mail flow better and less headaches when we have changes in the Committee Chairman.
The SuperFest Committee is also changing to a new mail list setup for those of you who have signed up to receive updates. The new list will make sending out updates much easier once it gets completed.
