KB9RRN Repeater 443.325 + PL 156.7
Low Profile Site - White River Township, Johnson County, Indiana
EchoLink 541081 KB9RRN-R
I was first licensed as a Technician on November 14, 1997, and upgraded to Technician Plus with 5 WPM code a year later in November 1998. I remained a Technician Plus until the latest round of license restructuring and my last license renewal, which led to my license class being "converted per 97.21a3". I had to learn code to get on HF but never made it to 13 or 20 WPM before the code requirement was discontinued.
I own and operate EchoLink node 541081, KB9RRN-R, a low profile UHF repeater built by K9NZF Systems that serves northwestern Johnson County, Indiana and the southwest side of Indianapolis. The vast majority of the time the repeater is linked to K9NZF-R, the K9NZF Kleer Konnect Repeater System in Randolph County, Indiana. K9NZF-R operates on 443.325/448.325 PL 103.5, and KB9RRN-R operates on 443.325/448.325 PL 156.7. I can usually be found on UHF listening to this system. In May of each year, this repeater also is a core member of the K9NZF-WA9RN Hamvention MegALinK Network providing mobile coverage from Indianapolis to Dayton for the Dayton Hamvention.
I am active in SouthCARS VoIP, serving in the capacity of net control station on occasion. Everyone is welcome to participate in SouthCARS, either on HF (7.251 MHz) or VoIP (EchoLink Node 96140 or IRLP Node 9614) and it is a fun net to join and participate in.
Professionally, I am a law enforcement officer, so naturally I use radio constantly in my occupation. I may sometimes forget which band I am on, and use the wrong phonetic alphabet or worse. If you hear me saying "king" instead of "kilo" for the letter K, that's why. One time I keyed up on my work radio and started giving my amateur callsign instead of my unit number. It happens.
