Formerly the call of our founder "Pop" Brown, the Club requested and received the call K7LED.  The call is reserved for Club operations and repeaters.  The call may be used by members for special events after receiving permission of the Radio Officer and a copy of the Club License.

The Club operates two FM repeaters under the call K7LED.  These are located at:
  • 146.82/146.22 MHz. - the two meter band
  • 224.12/222.52 MHz. - the 220 MHz band
The two meter repeater requires a tone squelch signal (PL) of 103.5 for access.  The Club does not operate a 440MHz repeater.  These repeaters are open to all amateur radio operators and no donations are accepted towards their operation.  In addition, the Club prefers that prospective members do not join if their only intention is to "just support the repeater".
