History

All Charter Members were voted Life Members.

In 1974 the club had 3 members, then someone said, Lets put up a repeater. K9DVL – Dave spent the Clubs entire treasury at $100.00 to buy a used GE tube type repeater that came out of service on the toll road. K9DVL – Dave and WA9DTT – Woody built a homemade duplexer from a QST article. The original repeater pairing was 146.34/94 back in the days of crystals for frequency control. We moved the 147.180 repeater from the sextons house to the new water tank that was built at Chase Park, which is its present location. The repeater started in 1974 or 1975. Within a year the Club had 25 members.
