Club Owned Repeaters
The Vicksburg Amateur Radio Club owns and maintains two open repeaters, and anyone is welcome to use them. Our repeaters are Yaesu System Fusion (YSF) capable and have emergency power. Both of these repeaters are located within the City of Vicksburg, Mississippi. The VHF repeater frequency is 147.270 (+) (100.0 Hz tone) and the UHF repeater frequency is 444.850 (+) (100 Hz tone).
The club also maintains an APRS Digipeater, K5ZRO-1, operating on 144.390 MHz. To view APRS activity in Central Mississippi, go to our APRS page.
VARC is currently evaluating adding a digital repeater (Yaesu System Fusion) that would be linked full-time to some other repeaters in the capital city of Jackson area. In addition, the potential for additional linked repeaters is being explored so that anyone with a digital handset or radio could connect into this repeater in Vicksburg through the broader linked system.
