Eastern Washington Amateur Radio Group
EWARG Packetcluster K7TJ-1 k7tj.ewarg.org port 7300 is open to all members and all amateurs. Sysop is Jay WS7I, this is a continuation of the oldest Packetcluster in the Pacific Northwest which was WS7I running the old AK1A software. It is now running DXSpider.
The Eastern Washington Amateur Radio Group (EWARG) has been an ARRL affiliated club since 1989. We have long supported ARES/RACES in EWA. This group has long been interested and supported Digital interests. EWARG has many members that do extensive RTTY contesting. What once was a very extensive digital system reaching from Boise, Idaho through Baker City, Oregon, and into Walla Walla, Pasco, Yakima, Ellensburg, and Spokane, Washington now is more limited.
Ewarg is now running remote systems. We currently have one HF remote site and will be adding some VHF capability to that system after pouring some more concrete. It also looks like an additional capability will also soon be on line. That will include 6 meter, 2 meter, and 440 SSB capability. This is being put together by EWARG club members.
The remote systems are the 2014 project(s) of WS7I & N2HS. N2HS remote is going to be a Belchfire Yagi for 6 meters and a stack of 144 and 440 yagi's for SSB use. The IC-7000 will be the radio of choice.
We are going to run remote audio and control to these sites using Wireless Radio and VOIP techniques.
