Club, ARES And QCWA Meeting Cancelled

For the health concern of all our Members, it has been decided to cancel our Club Meetings until further notice.  Don Roberts has also decided to cancel the QCWA Meetings and Randy Payne has cancelled the ARES Meetings also until further notice. If you have not yet paid your Club Dues, please mail them into Highlands County Amateur Radio Club, P.O.Box 7441, Sebring Florida, 33870. With the expense of having to move the Avon Park repeater every dollar is needed ! So please if you have not paid your 2020 dues yet we really need your help. Thank You ! Also of note: the Club picnic we had scheduled for April 4th, 2020 has also been cancelled.



Avon Park Repeater

We will be taking the Avon Park Repeater, 442.350 off line Monday, March 16th, in the morning due to the new power lines being activated within feet of our antenna.  It has been a deep concern that we will have a termendous amount of RF getting into the new repeater from these 230k power lines and damaging it. As soon as a new site can be located, we will put the repeater back on line. This was not an easy decision but one that needed to be made. Thank You for your understanding and patience, and hopefully we can find a new location soon !




We have started a new morning net everyday at 9:00AM on the 147.045 club repeater, with a PL tone of 100. Since our Club Meetings have been cancelled until further notice, the Board Members thought it would be a good thing to have a net every morning to check on the health and welfare of our Members. This is not a formal net, and anyone anywhere can check in, especially all of our hams in neighboring counties ! So pour yourself a cup of coffee and come join us for some informational and sometimes humorous conversations ! Also please join us on our weekly Club Net Wednesday nights at 8:30PM. 73 Everyone !
