Club Radio Station
EVARC operates a club radio station at the Estes Park Memorial Observatory. The station includes:
- ICOM 7300 HF radio with an 82-foot dipole antenna
- Two ICOM 9700 UHF/VHF radios
- UHF/VHF satellite tracking antenna and 2 X-50 UHF/VHF antennas
- YAESU FT-8900 UHF/VHF radio
- Computers for running the tracking antenna and operating Winlink
Currently the ICOM 7300 is used for training Estes Park school students and for club events. Plans call for the UHF/VHF radios to be used for ARES weekly nets and ARES activation. Plans call for a Yagi directional beam antenna to be added this year.
