Note: If you notice problems with any of the club’s repeaters, please contact email@example.com via email with a detailed description of what the issue is. If we don’t know that a repeater is down, we can’t fix it.
The county and metroplex are well covered for APRS on the standard 144.390 MHz, so we have not added any digipeaters on that frequency.
For special events, like the Plano Balloon Festival, Wild Ride, and MS150 we have a off-frequency APRS digipeater and I-Gate (Internet Gateway) K5PRK-11 on 144.340 MHz. With additional digi/I-gates W5MRC-14 in Melissa and W5NGU-4 in Denton on 144.340 Collin and Denton counties are well covered for special events.
In support of Collin County ARES, PARK has installed a VHF RMS Paclink node K5PRK-10 at the club repeater site, which operates on 145.090 MHz 24/7.
