KARC Repeater Update: Rainbow Country Net now daily on VE7RLO



If you were listening to VE7RLO this morning you may have noticed that the Rainbow Country Net (hosted on the VE7RPT repeater in the lower mainland) was active on our VHF and UHF repeaters.

VE7RLO will now automatically connect every day to the Rainbow Country Net, which starts at 09:00 AM PST (with early check-ins at 8:45 AM).  This is one of the most popular nets in BC with hundreds of people checking in.   VE7RLO will automatically disconnect from the net at 10:30AM, so hopefully you can check in by that time!  If not, we can tweak the script timing.

If you need to use the repeater during the net to call someone, or if there is an emergency, etc you can disconnect the VE7RPT Allstar Node by sending DTMF code *1435450 (which will disconnect VE7RPT), or *10 (code to disconnect the last active node, which should be RPT).

Don't worry about reconnecting to the net, it will start up automatically the next morning.

If you find this annoying and driving you crazy, please let me know.  This is a bit of an experiment to see if it might be enjoyable for club members.  If it is not working for people, it is easy to scrub the script and go back to how things were.
