    Coronavirus (COVID-19)

    This is something new starting around December of 2019 and still current. It's anticipated this crisis will last the rest of the year and possibly into 2021. Because of the (media caused in some cases) hysteria and lots of people staying home the internet may be overloaded and could possibly crash. If this happens you won't have email on your home PC and possibly on your "smart") phone. Therefore, you may have to use the "old school" way to communicate with SRG. Please tell your (amateur) friends about this, just in case they want to register to use SRG. Otherwise, since you are reading this the internet is still working.

     

    Access

    The access information is sensitive therefore, please respect that. SRG (system) is open and the information is free for you. Membership is not required however, very much needed for maintenance costs so, please consider joining.

    To emphasize this point:

    We have a few "rotten apples" that like to get this type of information to raise grief with repeaters and Clubs. Let's protect SRG. Therefore, keep the sensitive access info to yourself. Keep it off public access sites, such as the repeater directory, repeater site listings and other social groups (face book, twitter, etc.) Listing the repeater frequency is fine, but not the tones/codes for access. If you know someone that needs the information please ask them to contact SRG, here, like you did. SRG thanks you in advance for your cooperation in this matter.

    It is helpful if you register by sending your name, call, address and number to the address below, either mail or email. While listing a P.O. Box as a return address is fine for mail, your physical location is needed to help in future coverage plans, and in some cases to help in determining the best access route for the system. If advised, sensitive information is protected. If you have any family amateurs that would be using the system, please list them as well as their call sign(s). They are welcome, too. Also, because of the increased email spaming going around the world, there are more and more "black list" entries on email severs. What this means, some of folks's email DO NOT work. So if you don't get a reply in a week, please try "snail mail" (old school, stamps, envelopes, etc).


    Support

    It's an open repeater however, there are costs to operate. It's very helpful to support the repeater by sending your annual membership of $50 to the address listed. We are "old school" (paper, stamps etc.) therefore, we prefer cash (in person) checks or MO's.

    Make checks (or a M.O.) out to:
    Spokane Repeater Group
    P.O. Box 734
    Colbert, WA 99005

    Do to the old PC and OS, we are not equipped with any reliable E-version way of payment. One option is to pay a friend that still uses checks or MOs and that person can send in a payment in the U.S. mail. Another option Karl can swing by your place for a cash payment. Research is on-going for better ways to do this.

    If you are just traveling through the area, we understand and you are welcome to use the system, free for occasional use.

    Keeping a large area repeater on the air requires a huge amount of effort. If you can offer assistance in other ways you may check out a listing of projects and duties already underway. Nice for you to visit this page.

    Regards,
    Karl Shoemaker, AK2O, President, SRG
