Amateur Radio Club Providing Amateur Radio Service for the Arizona East Valley
The EVRG net runs every Tuesday night at 8 pm on the 440.375 repeater with a 100.0 pl and a plus offset. Everyone is welcome and all members are encouraged to check in.
The 440.375 frequency is a Yaesu System Fusion repeater set in auto mode. It is capable of both analog and digital transmissions.
We now have Wires X linked to the 440.375 EVRG repeater. This gives us the ability to connect to anywhere in the world through the internet.
We also have a backup repeater at the same location on South Mountain. The 444.825 frequency is as Kenwood repeater with a 100.0 pl and plus offset.
Both repeaters are open to normal amateur use when they are not in priority status for emergency communications.
We are starting something new for anyone that has a Yeasu Digital Fusion radio.
Now every 4th Tuesday night we will run the net in digital mode. This net will not be just for our members. We will encourage anyone with Fusion equipment to join us at 8PM on the net.

Amateur radio operators in the east valley of Metro Phoenix Arizona.
We are a group of Amateur Radio Operators that have formed this group to help provide emergency communications for the East Valley.
Anyone is welcome to view our web site but we do ask that before you sign up that you understand the purpose for this web site. The purpose is to develop a data base of hams that want to be prepared to be able to respond in an event of an emergency. Also, by signing up on the EVRG website you will receive e-mails that will inform the members of any important information pertaining to the East Valley Repeater Group. We encourage everyone to register with ARES, MCECG, and CERT to get any needed help to improve your level of training with the task of providing communications during an emergency.
Everyone is welcome to join our net on Tuesday night at 8:00 P.M. on the 440.375 repeater. The net's design is to have a place to ask questions, exchange ideas and run topics that will help prepare all of us to be ready to respond. If you are new to the hobby and just want to get use to pushing the PTT button during a net or an "old timer" that could help with getting others prepared, we encourage you to sign up on our website. You then will be a member of this group and you will receive all e-mails pertaining to this group.
Also, as soon as you become a member of the East Valley Repeater Group, we encourage you to develop your own “My Page” site. Use this space to tell us of any training and experience you already have and anything else you would like to share about yourself.
Thanks for stopping by and viewing our website.

(narrow band emergency message system)
This is a new system that is starting to have wide usage during any emergency communications situation. To get started you will need to download two pieces of software. Both are located at http://www.w1hkj.com/download.html . You will need FLDIGI and FLMSG. Download the one for your operating system. If you would like you can find some good info at http://www.arrl.org/nbems or http://www.pa-sitrep.com/NBEMS/index.html.
This is a very robust, free software package that gives anyone the ability to pass messages and forms with no need for any specialized cables or modems.
Stop by the net and Lynn K7HAM and I will do our best to help you get this software up and running for you and to explain how it is used.
