The Repeater is planned to be linked in the Summer to the K4JDR 444.150+ 100 PL proposed repeater outside of Clayton. coverage will extend to Goldsboro when traveling on Hwy 70, This site has a 2 meter Remote Base. The 444.150+ Seven Springs repeater is off the air due to a direct Lightning strike and a new proposed Frequency will be issued. The future plans are to link Seven Springs with Clayton UHF. Also on the table is to link the Kinston 444.575+ repeater in with Seven Springs or Clayton UHF.
Experimentation on other linking possibilities will take place and it is subject to change. The 147.390+ 88.5 PL in Clayton may also be looked at.
The Cary Repeater has a UHF Remote Base and will be linked to Middlesex NE4J 444.650+179.9 on demand sometime this Summer. This will also be changeable to other UHF Repeaters if the need arises for emergencies such as Skywarn.
Anyone wishing to use the Private features of the repeater are asked to contribute a min. of $15.00 per year to go to the telephone interconnect fund and will be given Two auto-dial slots with a Private code list.
Any local clubs are welcome to use the repeater at special events located in Cary even if they want to use it partially to eliminate radio traffic on a primary Simplex or another Repeater.Thanks,
