Welcome to PARC
Our club was founded in 1994. Population density is low here with few hams. Our membership is spread over a considerable area.
We provide communications support for local events such as the Piscataquis River Race and a dog sled race. The club also participates in ARRL Field Day. We sponsor the Three Rivers Hamfest in August.
We have a repeater operating from our club headquarters on Sargent Hill in Milo. It is on 147.210 MHz with a CTCSS tone of 71.9 Hz. This is a portable repeater that can quickly be taken to wherever it might be needed for an event or emergency. It consists of a Kenwood TKR-750 repeater and two power supplies (primary and backup) mounted in one transit case, Telewave duplexer in another case, and a small battery case. With a portable antenna this arrangement allows the repeater to be set up and operational in a matter of minutes.
If you live in or are visiting our area, we invite you to join us on our weekly net, Wednesday at 7:00 PM on area repeater 147.105 MHz with a 103.5 Hz tone. Guests are always welcome to attend our meetings, held the fourth Monday of the month at our home on Sargent Hill Drive, Milo, Maine.
Thank you for visiting and please come again...
