A list of SPARK Club Silent Keys has been posted to the website.
The club has been around for 83 years so the list is fairly long.
Any additions or corrections would be appreciated. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
I spent most of an afternoon earlier last week, researching the problem, then testing suggested fixes. After that, I recorded the repeater for two days straight without a failure and with clean audio, then again on Sunday’s net. All seems well now (fingers crossed).
I hope you all enjoy the website and Net audio, I spend a significant amount of my spare time maintaining this site and trying to keep the audio up to date.

NIST station WWV and sister stations are among the oldest radio stations in the United States, having been in continuous operation since May 1920. The station has transmitted the official US Time for nearly 100 years, and is an instrumental part in the telecommunications field, ranging from broadcasting to scientific research and education. Additionally, these stations transmit marine storm warnings from the National Weather Service, GPS satellite health reports, and specific information concerning current solar activity, and radio propagation conditions. These broadcasts are an essential resource to the worldwide communications industry. This petition requests continued funding of these stations be maintained into the 21st century and beyond to ensure future operations.
For your information and consideration.
No not the Ghostbusters. You call upon the fellow members of S.P.A.R.K. The other day, John, NØEE and Bret, KDØUSK stopped by to help me put up an antenna so I could finally get a base station on the air.
In the past, I can remember being on the other side, climbing, lifting, and pulling cables. It was a rewarding feeling helping out. It never occurred to me that some day I would be on the receiving side. The assistance from Bret and John is certainly appreciated. Thank-You!
If anyone else needs help on a project. Programming that new radio. Installing or operating that new software. Upgrading a license. Installing an antenna. Or, just getting on the air. All you have to do is say something and someone from SPARK will step up. The expertise and talent is pretty broad in the group. Someone will be able to help you out.
Thanks again for the help.
