About Bill - KE5WUT

Amateur Radio Operator (KE5WUT), Retired Navy, Just plain retired

Simplex Channel

In some situations, a simplex channel is helpful during an operation. Of course, an unused frequency is the best choice.

We have chosen the frequency of, 147.52 MHz. This particular frequency seems to be unused in our area, is far enough away from our two repeater input frequencies so as not to cause desense, and is easy to remember – nationwide calling frequency (146.52 + 1 MHz).

Please program in this frequency in all your radios.

Feedback welcome!


The Henderson County Amateur Radio Emergency Service net will be the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m.  We will be running the net on the CCARC repeater K5CCL, 146.900 MHz, Negative Shift, 136.5 Tone.
You do not need to be an ARES member or an ARRL member or a club member to check in, we invite all area ham operators to check in.
And a reminder that the North TX ARES net is the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 8:30 p.m. on 3.860 MHz.
