COORDINATION SURVEY PROJECT HAS ENDED
W.P.R.C. DUES FOR 2013
This project has come to an end. At
the July 21, 2013 meeting in Latrobe the W.P.R.C. frequency coordiator
presented a list of repeater and link systems to be removed from
the W.P.R.C. Coordination database. After some discussion from
those in attendance, a motion was made and passed to remove those
systems from the frequency coordination database. You can review
this list on the W.P.R.C. Repeater Directory
web page. This project was started in April of 2012 by former
frequency coordinator Joe McElhaney KR3P, and finished by current
frequency coordinator Frank Bobro N3FB on July 21, 2013. A new
updated repeater directory can now be
found by following the links to the new repeater directory's.
They are listed by frequency, location, and geographic area. Those
who participated with this project included Frank Bobro N3FB (frequency
coordinator), Joe McElhaney KR3P (former frequency coordinator),
Kevin Custer WJ8G (technical committee (chair), and with other
members of the current and former board of directors. All information
in the new repeater directory are as a result of the just ended
frequency coordination survey project. This information in this
list was gleaned from the returned frequency coordination survey
documents returned by those who hold W.P.R.C. frequency coordinations.
If you should find any inaccuracies in the new repeater directory's
please send either an email,
or write to W.P.R.C.
