The 449.825 Repeater is on the air!

The 449.825 is up!

From our President, Dunnigan Macilwaine, K1DUN

With great relief and appreciation, I am pleased to announce that the 449.825 is on the air once again. As always it is linked full-time to the 146.940. I can’t say enough to express my gratitude to Mike Kionka, our Chief Technical Officer, for making this possible. I also want to thank Richard Shaw and his son for providing safe storage for the repeater during the long interim. Then I want to thank Cliff Holloway and Ian MacIlwaine for their hands-on help with the painstaking re-installation. Cliff was also indispensable in getting us access to the repeater site. You all exemplify the spirit of RMRL and ham radio so well! I salute you!

How? Simply check in to every RMRL Monday night net between January 27th and June 16th, 2020. A couple of nice people bought three (3) RMRL memberships to give away, so you have an excellent chance of winning.
Make that five (5) memberships! Another generous member has stepped forward to contribute two more memberships to the great giveaway!

If you have an otherwise perfect record but miss a check-in because your hamster set your hair on fire and you have to go to the ER that night, proper consideration will be given to your circumstances. (Doctor’s note required.)

Seriously, you can keep your free membership or gift it to someone else, so it’s worth your while to check-in every week! The membership will be tacked onto your existing membership, so you won’t forfeit any time you have already paid for.

Winners will be announced June 29th.

YOU could be the next lucky winner!

Start a new net on the RMRL!

What a great time to start a net! Maybe you want to start a net for the short term (a couple of months) or you have been thinking about a net for the long term. Either way, we’ve got you covered.

Topic? We will entertain most ideas (except politics and religion). Maybe you would like to review entertainment options or share exotic recipes. Maybe you want to talk motorcycles or the best takeout delivery options.

We can help with a Net Script and give you tips on running a successful net.
