Thanks for visiting the Burke Amateur Radio Club's QRZ page. The Burke Amateur Radio Club (BARC) serves East Central Georgia and particularly the City of Waynesboro and the surrounding area.
Club officers for 2017 are:
John MacDonald, K4BR, president & repeater trustee
Our club's website may be found at http://burkearc.com
BARC has four repeaters, each of which ID with the club's callsign of K4BRK/R (for repeater) in Morse code.
All of BARC's repeaters are Yaesu DR-1X repeaters running in analog node, but subject to switch to "AMS" (Automatic Mode Select) for incoming signals at anytime. When the repeater is in AMS mode , it automatically recognizes the signal as either Yaesu Fusion's C4FM digital mode or analog FM mode. All four of our DR-1X repeaters are currently set to retransmit the signal, whether it's digital or analog, as analog FM.
Our "flagship" repeater is the 146.640 (-600) repeater. Club members and visitors enjoy our Echolink node of 6640 on this repeater.
Our four repeaters do not require a CTCSS access tone 99.9% of the time. When distant stations or intermod interfere with any of our repeaters, repeater users will be required to transmit a 71.9 Hz CTCSS tone to access the repeater. All four of our repeaters transmit a 71.9 Hz tone 24/7/365.
BARC also operates a long distance APRS digipeater with a directional pointing to 0° North. Coverage is at least 15 miles in all directions and 35 miles to the north. An iGate will be operational in early January, 2017
