  1. Hey, D, exactly which frequency is giving you trouble? According to my very informed source, the tower over by Thompson park is a new tower that only the city uses. The 444.200 repeater used to be on a tower there which was taken down -but that repeater has been moved to a tower on Echo and should be operational. All I can suggest is to check your offset and tone again. Every weekday the club has an informal net on 146.94 from 10:00-11:00 am which you are welcome to check in to –


  2. Hey guys I’m new to the ham radio community, I’ve had my license 4 days now I believe and I’ve tried making comms with someone in the area but the closest repeater to me seems to give me trouble I’m not able to kerchunk it even while being up on it. I’ve got it programmed exactly as needed. It’s the one over by Thompson park in the corner of the golf course. I can’t remember it’s callsign or freq at the moment. Now while at work I do get access to N5LUL but I work nights so no one is able to answer my call. But I try anyways just in case. Today I was able to access W5WX around 9 this morning so it seems like only that repeater is giving me troubles. Thanks again for any help sorry for the long comment that is actually a question hope to hear from y’all soon.
