State of Nevada invests in System Fusion Repeater and Wires X Link - NOW ACTIVE 442.900      CARSON CITY

The Nevada Department of Emergency Management (DEM) in Carson City has decided to add fusion to the State communications center! They are buying the repeater, HRI-200 box, and antenna so it may be linked into the NEVADA room 21676. This will also supplement a deficit of coverage for Carson City as it is shadowed from both Tahoe and Ophir. Special thanks to Robert KI7OXS for making this happen.

This system will proudly carry the CARS W7DEM callsign on the repeater and on Wires-X

CARS Expands -merging with Carson Valley Radio Club

We are pleased to announce the merging of the Carson Valley Radio Club- W7DEM in to the CARS family.  W7DEM is used at the Nevada State Communications Bureau for Amateur radio emergency communications 


This was honestly not planned but because long time faithful care taker Dale Anderson KV7S is leaving the area to be closer to his family, Jeff K5BLS and CARS have decided to merge the club and its assets on McClellan Peak above Carson City. 147.270 + Mhz 123.0 PL, 441.250 + Mhz 123.0 PL and the 443.750 + Mhz 123.0 PL repeater in downtown Minden will be added to the host of resources CARS has to offer the Amateur Community in Northern Nevada. 


Over the coming months and into next year Jeff will make updates and refinements to the nice host of equipment the Carson Valley Radio Club has built, and keep them going as best he can.

Dissections will also take place with the board to determine the use of the Carson Valley Radio Club name and use going forward. 


Growth is good, but we will miss Dale greatly, and wish him and his family the best of health and happiness. Thank you Dale!
