IRLP New Years Eve Net

Frequency: 
K9IP IRLP
County: 
IN Statewide
Description: 

It is once again time for the annual IRLP New Years Eve Around the world QSO party. This will be carried primarily on the 443.425 (DCS 043) Repeater. The event officially begins at 0530 local time Tuesday Morning continuing for 24 hours. IRLP repeaters in New Zealand go in to 2020 at 06:00 Tuesday morning local time. Following around the world until the last repeaters in Hawaii make it in at 05:00 Wednesday our time.

So if you are around anytime on New Years Eve, stop in and say Hello! I will likely have moved the repeater over to Reflector 9600 long before the official start, so expect to hear some new callsigns.

If your radio does not support DCS codes, you can use PL 94.8. But running DCS is better if you have it. The repeaters also transmit DCS 043.

Unfortunately, the 147.315 (DCS 043) repeater is working so poorly, I do not think it will be very useful this year. I recently moved the repeater to the same location as 443.425 hoping to take advantage of a VHF antenna that became available. But the 158 MHz antenna there is such a poor match at 147 MHz, receiver de-sense makes the system nearly unusable. I may end up returning it to its former location at my home. It worked great there, but did not have much antenna height.

Happy New Year!
