With the restoration of the West Central Ohio Amateur Radio Association (WCOARA) 145.110/224.160 system to it’s fully coordinated power and historical coverage of District 3, there has been ongoing work with the WCOARA and the Miamisburg Wireless Association (MWA) with regard to changing the District 3 Wednesday night net from the 146.820 repeater to the 145.110 repeater.

We will be transitioning to the WC8OH 145.110 (-)/224.160 (-) repeater with a PL of 67.0Hz effective with the Wednesday October 27th Net. We will be utilizing the 145.110 repeater on the 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th Wednesday’s of each month.

On the 3rd Wednesday of each month we will be using the WA8PLZ 146.820 (-) repeater with a PL of 77.0 Hz. as our alternate backup repeater.

We would like to Thank the West Central Ohio Amateur Radio Association and the Miamisburg Wireless Association for their support of this plan. Details of this plan will be posted on the MVARBB and the District 3 web site. Additional details will be forthcoming.

Greene County ARES net Change

Beginning Tuesday, August 25, 2020, the Greene County ARES (GCARES) Voice Net and Digital Training Net will move to the GCARES 440 repeater every fourth Tuesday of each month.

The nets will remain on the GCARES 2m repeater all other Tuesdays. This will allow us to train and test on the 440 repeater so that it is ready in an emergency.

Be sure to add the GCARES 440 repeater to your radios. (442.7250+ no tone)
