Repeaters and Facilities
WECA's main radio systems are located in central Westchester County. The antennas are over 800 feet above sea level. WECA maintains primary and backup voice repeaters for FM radio communications on the following frequencies:
To report problems with the repeater system, please contact the Repeater Operations Director by sending email to repeater at weca dot org.
Digipeaters and PBBS
WECA also operates three user accessible packet radio nodes on 145.05, 145.09, and 441.00 Mhz. These nodes are interconnected with the greater New York City packet radio network by 220 Mhz and UHF links. Two packet radio bulletin board systems (PBBS) are affiliated with WECA. These systems provide for store-and-forward message capability. Packet radio has recently emerged as one of the fastest and most efficient means of transmitting information on the amateur radio bands worldwide. At some point the WECA packet radio nodes will be terminated since this not a popular means of communications anymore.
WECA has recently added Winlink to our list of facilities. It can be accessed as WB2ZII-10 on 145.07. The best way to describe Winlink is "that it is a network of amateur radio and authorized government-licensed stations that provides worldwide radio email using radio pathways where the internet is not present." Please see the information at www.winklink.org for greater details about this service. If you have any questions, please send email to Rob / KD2QLQ (firstname.lastname@example.org).
