The JCARA provides the 146.790 MHz repeater (W4ABR) on Buffalo Mountain for club activities, general traffic, and support of the Washington County, TN Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES).

If you are living in our area, consider joining our diverse group of friendly folks.  Visit with us at our monthly club meetings each third Tuesday at 07:00 p.m. or on the air during our weekly net, every Tuesday at 09:00 p.m. (except meeting nights) on 146.790 MHz (-) (PL: 103.5), local time.

The repeater is now functional!
It is not yet at 100%, as there are a few more things that need fixed/tweaked that were unexpected, but it does work.
