TIME-OUT TIMER AND COURTESY TONE
The analog repeaters have 3 minute timers and usually a courtesy beep that sounds after the timer has reset. This allows time for possible break-ins by others. Please wait for the beep before transmitting. If not, the repeater may time out. For busy periods the time-out may be shorter.
Allstar link is being added to one of the 2 meter analog machines.
IRLP We hope to have IRLP back working soon. See http://status.irlp.net
We no longer offer an autopatch function. Enjoy your cellular phone.
Any financial contributions to the Group are welcomed.
We have a standing Friday Lunch Bunch at Willamson Brothers BBQ East of the Big Chicken in Marietta. We have occasional work parties at the repeater site.
We arrange a trip to the Dayton Hamvention every year. A 25 year tradition with BSRG, we set up in two or three flea market spots.This gives a place to meet, rest and sell. Its a really nice setup!
