Amateur Radio Club Providing Amateur Radio Service for the Arizona East Valley
The EVRG net runs every Monday night at 8 pm on the 449.825 repeater with a 100pl and a minus offset. Everyone is welcome and all members are encouraged to check in.
NEW 2 meter simplex link
The 449.825 repeater now has a controlled 2 meter remote base. This is a simplex (no tone and no offset) remote base on 146.460. You can turn the link on and off by inputting DTMF tones on the remote base frequency. Any member of EVRG can call me or use this site to email me and I will call you back to explain how everything works and the caution needed when using a linked remote base.

We are a group of Amateur Operators that have formed this group to provide emergency communications for two East valley hospitals. The two hospitals are the Chandler Regional Hospital located at 475 S. Dobson Rd. and the Mercy Gilbert Hospital located at 3555 S. Val Vista Dr.
Our home repeater is located in Gilbert AZ on the Mercy Gilbert hospital with a coordinated frequency of 449.825 with a 100.0 PL and a minus offset. A repeater on the Chandler Regional hospital is in the works and when ready will become our back-up frequency.
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 will respond to these two hospitals 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 Monday night at 8:00 P.M. on the 449.825 repeater. If you believe that you could help us with this task of providing these hospitals with emergency communications, 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.
