A word on the 147.105 repeater from our club president N0HKK
I am very happy to announce that we finally got the Openspot working for the 147.105 and all of the repeaters linked via WiresX on our System. With this, you can now talk from anywhere in the world even if mobile as long as you have internet, a hotspot and radio with Fusion, DMR, D-star, etc. you need to set your hotspot for FCS and select the server/room to 003 room 091 STL-Metro.
Formal Traffic on Nets
On Monday April 27th on the 147.075 weekly 8 pm practice net we had someone pass Formal Traffic, and nobody seemed to be familiar with it. It is not particularly common anymore, but it is good to know how to do it. It is sort of an Amateur Radio Telegram that is passed through networks until it gets to it’s destination.
