Amateur radio can be big help in crisis
About Us | W3ZIC
These amateur radio repeaters provide a very valuable service to many stations, and in particular those that do not have particularly good locations or those amateur radio stations that are using only low power. A repeater, whether an amateur radio repeater or even a commercial repeater is a station that receives a signal on one frequency and simultaneously re-transmits it on another. Repeaters are sited in good locations with good coverage enabling stations that can access the repeater to be heard on the output and thereby take advantage of the location of the repeater. Effectively it gives the low power amateur radio station the same coverage as that of the repeater. In this way radio hams using small handheld transceivers, or those using mobile equipment in a motor vehicle are able to make many more contacts than they would otherwise be able to do. A ham radio repeater is essentially a relay station that receives a signal on one frequency and retransmits the audio on another.

We provide fun and fellowship for our fellow Amateur Radio operators in the area, communications for public events, and emergency communications in the event of natural disaster. The latter two are at no cost as per Federal Communications Commission law. The Fort Venango Mike and Key Club is dedicated to community service and increasing the awareness of Amateur Radio among the general public by providing communications support for civic events and emergency services when called upon by local authorities in time of need. We are committed to using our network of technical resources to provide equipment and skilled operators to assist and protect the citizens in the communities in which we live and serve. We do this by actively planning for the future of Amateur Radio with activities that include recruiting, training, advancement and helping committed hams carry on the tradition of amateur radio.
