Important Information
attention
A help wanted message from Tim wt1a.
Google map to the work site at Tim wt1a
This is the correct information regarding the location of WT1A.  Google Maps will try to convince you that the house is only about 1.2 miles from Rt. 4 on Sanders Road when, in fact,  you are only about 1/2 way there.  My house is 2.2 miles from Rt. 4 and at the very top of the hill.  The last 700' is my dirt driveway which extends past the end of the town road at the cul de sac.  Don't be afraid, the driveway is completely safe and passable.
Work party is at 9 a.m. Saturday August 11, followed by a barbecue.
Please RSVP to wt1a.tim@gmail.com if you plan to attend.
Thanks and 73,
Tim, WT1A

The D-star Repeater on 443.300 as of August 27, 2017 is off the
air and will be moved to another tower in Livermore.
The Poland repeater 147.315, was relocated to another location on White Oak Hill in Poland with the same height or more and 50 watts. 
The Auburn Repeater 146.61 was also taken down and
relocated at Ivans house in Lewiston on Saturday morning Sept. 23 and is now back on the air. The site will have a few modifications and become the permanent home for the repeater.
At the club meeting May second the club decided to abandon the Leeds repeater project. Instead the coordination will be changed to the club presidents new house in Livermore that is on a taller hill than the Leeds location and has internet access that the Leeds site did not have. DStar may also move to this site....stay tuned.
