The Rockbridge Amateur Radio Club is located in Lexington Virginia. Its club repeaters include the W4ROC 6m (53.010-), 2m (147.330+) and 440 (444.150+). There are wide coverage repeaters and are located on top of Rocky mountain to the north of Lexington at approximately 4100 ASL. These repeaters are typically connected to the Central Virginia Repeater Association's 900Mhz Hub, which is used to link other repeaters in the area together. This has two main benefits, one being it creates more traffic over the analog repeaters, and the other is direct access to the emergency communications center in Richmond, Virginia.
The club is also working on a D-Star repeater (444.300+) that is currently in its testing phase. This will offer another mode of communication to the area, and D-Star users that travel the interstate past Lexington will have access.
There are nets available for those that are within the sound of the repeater to partcipate in. The 2m net is on Tuesday evening at 21:00 Eastern. This is an ARES net, but all are invited to participate. There is a 6m net are well, and it is conducted on Saturday evening at 21:00 Eastern. Again, all are invited.
It anyone is interested in attending a meeting or joining the club, please contact either Steve Presti, W4SVP email@example.com for more details.
