Repeater Updates 7-23-21

Recently, the team of Jim, WØJRN, Shaun, KØSMM and I, KØRPT installed the 443.900+ repeater at Northbend NE and it is working very well.

For a temporary repeater change, the KØRPT 147.195+ & – repeater is in analog mode so that the LARC can use it for Cornhusker State Games. There is a bicycle tour that is 100 miles and goes deep into Gage County. When the event is complete, 147.195+ will go back to digital and once again be connected to the NeARES room on WiresX.

The 224.980, 145.145 and 147.075 link has been temporarily disconnected as we build another linking controller to add the 444.625 Julian repeater. We’ll install this new link site in the real near future. Keep an eye on us.

We are working with Pawnee Amateur Radio Club of Columbus to move a UHF repeater and install it at a much higher location and then start the process of linking their 146.640- repeater.

We are in the talking and design phase with Blue Valley Amateur Radio Club to bring the 147.270+ WAØHOU repeater into the system. We’ll keep you up to date as we progress.


Much thanks to all who are working with NeARES… Things are happening and we’re glad to be a part of the team…

NeARES officially a NON-Profit Corporation in Nebraska

NeARES has officially became a non-profit corporation registered with the Secretary of State in Nebraska. It’s taken some time to complete all task’s but, we’re done and can move forward with our mission and goals. We are a member less organization as we don’t want to be competitive with any other like organization within the Section of Nebraska. Our goal is to bring like organizations together to form a large scale statewide team in support of ARES, SkyWarn and other events that may come. Our mission is based solely on philanthropy. Through the use and distribution of donated funds and materials to smaller organizations where a need is present, acting as technical advisers and assisting those organizations where possible, we hope to achieve our goals in building the large scale statewide network of teams.

No part of its income or net earnings are to inure to the benefit of or be distributable to its members, directors or officers or to any private individual. The corporation shall not issue any stock. To assist like organizations as technical advisors and assistants where needed in the implementation and installation of communications equipment allowing said organization to fulfill volunteer duties in a manner prescribed by the ARRL Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) Strategic Plan. This can include the repurposing of donated communications equipment to said organizations where funding is limited and a real need is demonstrable.

ARES/SkyWarn Happenings

ARES/SkyWarn Happenings

The storm season is upon us and that means we’re ramping up for activations and some “Eye’s In The Sky” fun. There are some changes this year in point locations and we’ve added a new point. Additional changes include repeater assignments. We’re in the process of completing Storm Spotter Packets for 2021 that will include all of the new information. We will produce a video and post it on Neares.net for all spotters to watch before getting the 2021 Spotters Packet. We also need to have everyone update your ARES registration. With the merge of Sprint and T-Mobil, email addresses and Text Alert data has changed. Please visit https://neares.net/ares-membership/ and complete an update.

The system will not send you an e-mail but, it will me and I can update you in the database. 2021 Spotter Packets will go out to those who have updated the ARES registration and watched the video that contains all the new information for the 2021 storm season.

Thanks for your participation!
