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. This now includes a Chewalah Digipeater. We are going to run remote audio and control to these sites using Wireless Radio and VOIP techniques.
