The monthly RATS Membership Meeting will be this Friday, April 21 at 7:30 PM via Zoom
. All are welcome -- you do not need to be a member of the club to attend, though we'd appreciate your support
As a reminder, ham radio volunteers will be supporting a public service event this weekend. Certain RATS services are reserved for event traffic Saturday morning and early Saturday afternoon.
The W4RAT 442.55 MHz and KG4MRA 145.43 MHz repeaters will be in use by amateurs supporting the Ukrop's Monument Avenue 10K race on Saturday, April 22. These repeaters will not be available for regular amateur use during the event. WIRES-X services on the 442.55 MHz repeater will be disabled and the repeater will operate with a configuration change from 10 PM Friday night until all event traffic has cleared. If you must make a brief call on one of these repeaters please coordinate that activity with Net Control and QSY.
For additional information, please see the Repeater Status page.
Update: As of 12:25 PM 4/22/2023, this event has concluded. The 442.55 repeater has been returned to its usual configuration and all repeaters are again available for regular amateur radio use. Please be mindful of possible SKYWARN activity on the 146.88 repeater this afternoon and evening.
