This net meets every Thurssday evening at 7:30pm local time on the KB3HLL repeater system. Stations checking into the net may use any of the following three machines, all of which are linked to form the BERA system.
These consist of the 147.09MHz and the 443.05MHz machines, both of which are located high atop the Bald Eagle Mountain in South Williamsport, PA, as well as the 145.49MHz machine, which is located just outside of Montoursville near the Lycoming Mall. All three do require a pl tone of 167.9 to gain access.
In the event of a failure of our main repeater, the 147.09 machine, stations are asked to use the 145.49 repeater as the alternate, when possible. This is a low coverage repeater so some stations on frequency may not be able to access this machine. (break)
