Ham Member Lookups: 8016


     Previous callsigns: AC4UQ, KC4YMW, AC26UQ, AC96UQ, AC400UQ. The special calls were from a temporary authorization during the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. QRV all analog modes 80m-23cm, and most digital modes 80m-70cm.

     I maintain the (Conyers, GA.) 146.61 - 103.5 and 444.55 + 103.5 repeaters. I also maintain two BBHN mesh nodes in the North Georgia area: K1KC-NWRockdale-Omni1 and K1KC-Dacula-Omni1. Sometimes I participate in WiRES-X in various rooms. I have WiRES-X connectivity to the 2m repeater and via a 2m/440 node in the shack. 

     The 146.61 repeater is currently operating in System Fusion (C4FM) Mixed Mode. You may use analog, DN or VW modes and the repeater will adapt. The 444.55 repeater is connected to the Allstarlink 40804 hub and the McDonough (GA) 146.715 and McDonough (GA) 927.1375 repeaters under normal circumstances.

     The repeaters are always open to the public. These two repeaters serve as backup repeaters for the Rockdale County Georgia A.R.E.S. group. In addition, these repeaters are always connected to emergency power as is their Internet connection. 

     For all you C4FM Yaesu System Fusion operators, release of the new DR-2X repeaters is imminent. The K1KC system expects to upgrade to the new model. You should be aware that it will be necessary to upgrade the firmware in all Yaesu C4FM radios to properly interact with the DR-2X. 

     In anticipation of this upgrade, I expect the 444.55 repeater to move to System Fusion AMS mode and to disconnect from the 40804 Allstarlink hub. This is because the McDonough repeaters are analog-only. The 444.55 repeater will then link to the 146.61 repeater which already operates in the AMS mode. The link to the 40804 hub will be re-established with a different 440 repeater pair.

     As previously announced, we are still hoping to link up with other C4FM repeaters nearby that operate in the AMS mode....in particular, 2 meter repeaters. No action has been taken yet and all systems are operating as stated in the beginning paragraphs. Changes will be immediately announced here and via the Yellow River Digital Group web pages.     

     Interested in C4FM and other digital operating methods? Consider joining our club, the Yellow River Digital Group. Check us out on Yahoo groups under the name "Yellow River Digital Group". 

     Many thanks to W4NOC for his gracious assistance in making much of this possible. May I pay tribute to some of the amateurs that have left us in recent times? Our dear friends, K4UDR, W4GF, KR4IP, WB4DZK, N4RDM, W3IRZ, W4LHS, W4FDA and W4WDH, have left us with great sadness. However, we rejoice in the knowledge and friendship they shared with us over the years.   73 Dear Friends
