KB9JRGComments Off on STARS Annual Holiday Party December 14, 2023
The December STARS meeting at Beggar’s Pizza in Oak Forest was delightful! Most of the current members attended, and the food and service at the venue were excellent. It was wonderful to spend time in person with those we typically communicate with on the airwaves at the celebration. The officers of STARS wish all a safe, joyful, and festive holiday season.
We hold meetings at the Bridgeview Community Center at 7902 S. Oketo Avenue in Bridgeview, Illinois, 60455, starting at 7:30 PM CDT. Please visit the event page at https://w9src.org/events/month/2023-12/ for meeting dates, including the address and a map.

NF9QComments Off on STARS 2M repeater is on Echolink
The STARS 2M repeater offers Echolink! We are excited to support this mode. There is no excuse not to check in to the nets while traveling. The callsign is W9SRC-R and will appear in Echolink’s repeater section. For reference, the Node ID is 763923. Please try it out and let us know what you think.
We have replaced our aging UHF repeater with a brand new Yaesu DR-1. The new machine is on the same frequencies as our old repeater (442.675 with a standard 5 MHz positive offset and a PL tone of 131.8). Thanks to the Hamfesters Radio Club (W9AA) for their assistance with our latest purchase.
