We meet for an open net on Tuesday evenings at 2100 hours mountain time on the 147.34MHz repeater (positive offset, 100Hz tone) and 145.23MHz repeater (negative offset, 131.8 tone) when linked. On the second Tuesday of each month the net is operated simplex (no transmit offset). All amateurs are welcome to check-in.
These weekly nets give our members an opportunity to regularly check their radio equipment and to become more familiar with communications protocols and procedures. Each net also provides a short 5 minute training item on various topics related to emergency communications, procedures, health and safety, and radio equipment.
Monthly Interface Meeting
The monthly UCARES interface meeting is a “face to face” meeting where we get together in person to meet new faces and to discuss various topics involving HAM Radio, Emergency Communications, or Public Service. Frequently there are presentations, training, and project workshops. Check back on this page for the current schedules.
Scott Golightly (KG7WHX) is our Interface coordinator. Clark Cox (KA6PIZ) and Gary Hutton (KE7UIA) are on the interface committee. Feel free to e-mail them, or leave a comment here if you have suggestions or comments about interface meetings.
Interface meeting is usually held the first Tuesday of each month at 7:00pm. On the odd months the meeting will be at the Lehi Fire Station #83, 3870 Traverse Mountain Blvd, Lehi.
On the even months the meeting will be in the North Annex training room (North West side of the building) at the Utah County Sheriffs Office. (NOTE: Please don’t go to the “Emergency Services” office. That’s on the south east side of the same building)
New HAM Night
A monthly “New HAM night” is held on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm at the same location. This is a very informal meeting to answer questions about HAM radio, get help configuring and programming equipment, and getting to know UCARES members and leadership. Everyone is welcome.
