New Repeater!

There’s a new repeater set up in Maben.

We have a new repeater at the Maben Fire Tower installed by the Magnolia ARC K5DY. The 2 meter frequency is 147.315+ with a tone of 110.9 and the 70cm frequency is 444.325 with a tone of 110.9

It’s located on the west side of Oktibbeha county off of the Maben Sturgis Road. The repeater appears to have good coverage.

Tape measure Yagi Antenna

Mark, KI5GIG, has an interesting project of building a Yagi antenna out of a tape measure that he’d like to share with us. Below is a link to the instructions and he will share more at the next meetings and he will have a limited number of kits to purchase at the 2022 Field Day which you can assemble at that time with assistance when needed.
