Announcing the launch of the Wide Area Network Repeater System...The overview found at http://www.wanrepeater.com/explains an amateur radio linking system which has been deployed in the central region of Pennsylvania which has near seamless north-south coverage from the New York State line into northern Maryland. It is the intention of the development team that this link system remain fluid in its application; which can and will change in purpose, as the need arises. The official name of the link system is "The Wide Area Network Repeater System" or WAN-RS. In times of disaster, it will serve many purposes for agencies like FEMA, PEMA, ARES and RACES/ACS, but from a neutral standpoint.


Renew your ARES membership soon! (go for it, it takes about 30 seconds)

From Larry Keller AB3ER
Section Emergency Coordinator WPA ARES:


I am pleased to announce that ARES Registration should be made much easier with the introduction of an on line application system. We will be working with ARRL HQ using new software to compile a current roster in a spreadsheet format. WPA Section was selected to trial and assist in defining enhancements to a system intended to make ARES more efficient. This represents a great step in our efforts to better communicate with each other at all levels, community, county, district and section. The roster offers the advantage of attracting new hams to ARES through the ARRL website and a very streamlined application process and maintaining current ARES member listings for use in callouts, announcements and many others.

The application form is found at



It's Here 160 Meter Multi Bander, Off Center Fed

160 Meter Off Center Fed Antenna << Click Here or call (610) 317-9779



TheHy Power 160 meter off center fed antenna is made with the same material astheir 80 meter off center fed antenna. The only differences are three:

1. The over all length of the 160 meter off center fed antenna is 268 feet.

2. The antenna is fed about 87 feet in from one end of the antenna.

3. The OCF160 covers the following ham bands. They are 6, 10, 12, 17, 20, 40, 80 and 160 meters.
