2014 Cellcom Marathon Volunteers

Dennis, KC9OIS says planning for the 2014 Cellcom Marathon has begun.

He suggests checking the Cellcom Marathon-ARES website at least once a month. He notes he will will be updating information that affects Amateur Radio volunteers specifically. THIS WILL BE THE PRIMARY MEANS OF COMMUNICATING WITH AMATEUR RADIO VOLUNTEERS!

We are looking for 40-50 or more volunteers for 2014, so pass the word. IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE INTERESTED IN VOLUNTEERING, HAVE THEM JOIN Cellcom Marathon-ARES website GROUP.


I am looking to set up a 3 or 4 man committee to help organize the event. One person to work out changes to details on communications issues (repeaters vs med tents) and previous issues with NET Control Communications.

One person to manage assignments & last minute changes. One person to lead / manage Net control operations in my absence.

I am becoming more involved at the organization and logistics levels and will be shadowing Tom Krahn during the event. If you are interested send me an email.

Many of the meetings are once a month at 7:00am on Tuesday or noon on Wednesday or Thurday in Green Bay, but are not a requirement to attend. I will make all of the meetings if I get the reports and updates a day or two before the meetings. As soon as I get the calendar I will pass it on.

IRLP restored December 8th, 2013

Internet has been restored to the hill which brings the IRLP on 444.775 back on-line.  Our existing link to St. Norbert's had to be removed in early November for their remodeling project.  The new link is using the same equipment as before but is now at a club members home.  It is a 4.8 mile hop on 2.4Ghz.  The signal appears fine, however we need to watch it over the next week to make sure that it is stable.


Greetings Everyone -

Matt, KC9UHI has started up a message board as a central location for discussion of various digital technologies in amateur radio. It seems as many people in the area are beginning to get more involved with HSMM, P25, APRS, etc. and working on implementing the technology for use. Unfortunately, most of the project ideas and breakthroughs aren't currently easily communicated to others who might have valuable input - here's a way to do so.

Check out the board at

Please feel free to share the site with others who might be interested.
