This past weekend during the VHF contest there was not much 2 meter activity. I know it depends on propagation alot etc. However I figured it may be worth the effort to have some coordinated times and frequencies throughout the weekend in order to boost/ promote 2 meter activity. It would be a good opportunity for new hams who have FM gear but also show them all the possibilities with their privileges. food for thought but I am sending an email to all hams I know and clubs around here etc.

The Kent County Repeater Club., KC1DGM  has 3 repeaters on the air.

146.910  C4FM digital and analog PL100
224.300 Analog PL 100
446.725 Analog PL100
These are local repeaters for the Kent County area and not intended to
cover the State of Rhode Island.
Please give then a  try.

Also I have added Echolink to the 2 meter 146.910 repeater. the node call sign is KC1DGM.

There’s a Saturday morning ham radio breakfast at 8 AM weekly at the Uncasville Diner on Rt. 32 in Uncasville, CT… no meeting, no agenda, just a bunch of amateurs and their friends and family members gathering for conversation and good food.  We meet in the Sun Room in the back of the restaurant, located at 884 Norwich – New London Turnpike.  For questions call Kevin, KA6PDG, at 860 886-0762
