UPDATE:The 442.750 MHz repeater is back online.The 147.16 MHz repeater remains offline for now. The repeater SADRC uses for 442.750 MHz blew its high power amp, so we have taken it out of service and will be replacing it with a newer model. Once that comes in from Yaesu, we will get the repeater back up as quickly as we can. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but you may be assured that we are on top of the problem and 442.750 MHz will be back soon.Read More →

SADRC Friends and Members: In the past year, many of you have asked how you can help keep the club operating financially.

Below is a link to a GoFundMe campaign, where you can make a gift of any size.  All money we raise through this campaign will go towards coveringRead More →

Not long ago, some of the SADRC equipment was damaged by a nearby lightning strike. We have been working diligently to recover the capabilities that were lost.
