SARC info

The South Alabama Radio Club was formed on July 29, 1995 to provide a community service and to have available emergency communications during the event of a disaster.  Additional information about the club can be found on the Club History page.



SARC 2-Meter Net

Our net is called Thursday evening at 7:30 PM Central time on the WC4M repeater 147.260 + (100 Hz tone).  The alternate frequency of 147.260 simplex is used as a backup frequency when needed.   There is no net called on club meeting night which is the third Thursday of the month.   If you are passing through the Andalusia, Alabama area we'd love to chat with you!  Some one is usually jawboning on these frequencies especially in the evening hours! 

During severe weather, the Covington County SKYWARN group uses the 147.26 repeater. Check the ARES/RACES page or the preamble for more information about ARES/RACES. For information about other nets in the area check out the Local Nets page.
