Wires-x is back online

Hi everyone, the Wires-X is back online.  It took longer to get the computer because of the damage to the Amazon sorting center in Baltimore that was damaged in last weeks storm.  But it is back online and working.  Let me know if you have any problems.

Wires-X repeater

The computer that runs the Wires-x node for the 448.425 Wires-X repeater has bit the dust.  Initially I thought it was just hard drive failure but a new hard drive did not fix the problem.  There is a new computer on the way but it will not be here until Monday.  The repeater is still working as both an analog and digital repeater, it is just not connected to the America Link Wires-X room.

I will get it back up as soon as I get the new computer for the node.

Foxhunt Saturday October 6th

FARC will be having a foxhunt on Saturday October 6th at 1pm at Baker Park in downtown Frederick.  This event is open to everyone, the more people the more fun it is.  Bring your friends, family and the dog.  The cool thing about a foxhunt is that you do not need to be licensed to participate because you are only receiving.

We will be meeting at the Bandshell in Baker Park at 1 to start the hunt.  Here is a link on Google Maps for the location: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Baker+Park+Bandshell/@39.4162031,-77.4174838,805m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x89c9da5704638f99:0x61975dbf47d875f!8m2!3d39.416199!4d-77.4152898

If we can get enough people we will setup teams and make a friendly competition out of it.  After the hunt is done, everyone is welcome to meet for lunch/dinner for some fun radio discussion.

Since I will be the one hiding the foxes, I will have some equipment that can be used if you do not have gear and want to try them out.

Here are some google map screen caps of where we will meet.  There is plenty of parking along the streets in this area.
