HARC Installs New Repeater

It’s finally here!  The second DMR repeater under the W8YY call.  Through generous donations we were able to acquire a Motrola SLR 5700 and other necessary hardware to set up a new repeater at the Calumet Air Force Station.  Along with the new repeater we have changed our talkgroup structure as follows:
CAFS = Calumet Air Force Station
TS = Time Slot
TG = Talk Group

Copper Dog 2016

Over the weekend of the 26th 7 members of HARC volunteered as ride along radio operators for the Copper Dog sled dog race.

As part of our duties we provide communications over the entire course:CD16 CD150 Marketing Map 2016-02-08

This means mobile vhf radios are a must.  Since we are riding in the race official’s vehicles we need mag mounts, lots of mag mounts:

It was a great event and we look forward to next year!
