Yaesu DR-1 Repeater On the Air!

We have been given an opportunity by Yaesu to test out their brand new DR-1 C4FM/FM Digital Repeater! The repeater is on the 444.825 + 123.0 located on Mt Davidson in the south end of Reno. The system will accept both analog and digital communications. Currently there are only two radios Yaesu manufactures that has the new C4FM Digital mode, the FT1DR HT and FTM-400DR Mobile Radio. But you dont need a digital radio to use the repeater. A big thank you goes out to Yaesu for allow us to be one of the first to test their new digital repeater along with Tom Taormina K5RC for putting in a good word to Yeasu for SNARS to test new system.

New Meeting Location

Our Monthly Breakfast meetings will now be held at Denny's in Sparks from 7:30am to 8:30am starting April 5, 2014. They are located at 205 East Nugget Ave on the corner of 1-80 and McCarren Blvd in Sparks. They will provide their normal menu to order from and also have agreed to not add gratuity to everyone's bill but of course they would love for your to tip your servers. The meetings will be held in their meeting room in the back.

The move of the meeting from our location in South Reno was due to Jack's Cafe closing their doors. Thank you to everyone who provided suggestions on the new location.

See you all next month!

March Meeting Cancelled

The SNARS Monthly Breakfast Meeting for March 1st 2014 has been cancelled. This is due to Jack's Restaurant on South Virginia Street is now closed. We received a call on Monday they were closing their doors and due to the small amount of time to find another place to accommodate our group it was decided by the board to cancel this month's meeting.
We are working on an alternative location for April's meeting and will announce soon once we have worked out the details.
