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...

[ A Message From The Superstition ARC President on The SuperFest 2021 ]

The SuperFest Chairman, John KG7NSP, is well under way planning for the big Superstition SuperFest As you all know this is the club's biggest event and fund-raiser. Without the SuperFest the club would struggle to pay the bills. I can not say this enough, John needs help with this event. It takes a year of planning to pull it off and he needs help. Not only does he need help, he needs someone to take over as chairman. This is John's fourth year as SuperFest Charmian and it's time for sone one else to step up .He will help anyone who steps up so you are not alone. I hate to say this but if we do not get help with the SuperFest, it may not happen at all.

One of the largest SuperFest's in Arizona could go away. How sad that would be just because the club cannot get any of its 231 members to help out.

[ News From The Tech Committee ]

Fellow club members, as most of you should know by now, the tech team was out at the Stone Castle site on Saturday morning. We removed all of the equipment to install a new network rack that will now house all of the repeater equipment. As you all are also aware, the 147.12 Fission repeater up at Usery mountain failed about a month ago so we reprogrammed the 448.275 repeater and put it in its place until the repeater gets back from repairs. While at the Stone Castle site we decided to put our back up repeater on UHF online at the Stone Castle and move the Yaesu back up to the Usery site, so both 147.120 analog and 448.275 digital are back up and running now. We ran into problems at the Stone Castle with the backup repeater and a programming problem. We did not have the means to program it at the site as our tech person who does that was not available to meet us up there, so the 449.600, Echolink, and Allstarlink are all offline at this time. We hope to get everything back to normal by Sunday afternoon. If not, these modes may be down for several days and not linked.

Just an update: The backup repeater is back online along at the Stone Castle sounding great. The Echolink and Allstarlink are still currently offline. The Tech Team is still working on getting that back online.

Thanks Again.
Steve Estes KB7KWK.
President and Tech Team Member
