     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. A Moto 900MHz repeater sits dormant until such time as sufficient antenna height becomes available to make it worth turning on.  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. 

NOTE: The 146.61 receive antenna took a lightning strike July 25, 2017. That's it at the top in the picture. The highest point was about 145' before it was blown apart! It will have to be replaced and that will be a tough job! Perhaps a temporary solution can be effected. Updates will be posted here.

     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. 

     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". The YRDG held its third meeting on 8-20-17 at the library in Monroe, GA., Walton County at 3PM. The main topic of discussion was Reflectors: What they are & how they work.

     It is our intention to establish a 'Yellow River Digital Group' WiRES-X room, with connectivity to to other platforms such as DMR, D-Star, Allstarlink and so forth. Hey, it only takes time and money! UPDATE: This has been accomplished! The WiRES-X User ID is: YARD-DOGS. The DTMF ID is: 40627. The Room Name is: Yard Dogs and the City is: Conyers and the State is: Georgia. Those are all searchable parameters. 

     The Yard Dogs room is an experimental effort for the benefit of the Yellow River Digital Group, but of course, is open to anyone wishing to connect. If the room cannot be located on the active nodes/rooms list, then it is inactive at that moment. Connectivity to other platforms has not been established at the node location as of yet. We are hoping some smart guy in the group will fix that for us!

     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
