The DELARA / ARES Club Station

After some time and effort, DELARA has been granted use of the American Red Cross Delaware Chapter building. We have established a functioning all-band, all-mode amateur radio station there. This station features some contest-quality radios, and it’s open for use by members any time. There are four operating positions: The ARES Desk This is intended for use as the “County Control Station” during any ARES activity, whether emergency or public service. there are two Yaesu FT-8800 dual-band radios and computer access for WebEOC and other emergency management tools. The station is capable of handling digital messages to our served agencies via FLDIGI.  There is a second operating position with another VHF radio available, and we have a MESH node at the station, for sending video, telephony, or digital messages via this exciting new 2.4 GHz mode. HF 1 Yaesu FT-950, this is a great contest position. HF2 This is a Yaesu FT-5000, with remote access and remote control. HF3 This is shared position with a Kenwood 120 outfitted for HF digital modes, a Drake transceiver, and the secondary ARES VHF radio. We offer an excellent Tri-band beam at 50’, a 160-meter fullwave Delta Loop, and an extended double zepp (inverted V at about 70’) for HF operating. We intend to add more antennas when the weather breaks. The equipment has been donated by club members, who are enthusiastic about keeping this a top-level operating station.  The station managers are Dale, W8KTQ and Donn, K8AOK.
