Radio Programming Files

Robert W9RKK has provided two sets of files for programming the Yaesu FTM-300DR and Yaesu FT3-DR radios with local repeaters. He has graciously included both instructions with screenshots and the files to load to the radio. They can be found on the menu under Ham Resources -> Radio Programming Files.

Any other club members who would like to provide programming files for different radios to be posted on the web site please send them along using the “Submit an Article or Event” at the bottom of this web page.

Public Safety Open House

The Village of Schaumburg is  sponsoring a “Public Safety Open House” on Saturday October 2nd at Schaumburg Fire Department Station 51, 950 W. Schaumburg Road.  The event will open to the public from 11:00 AM until 2:00 PM.  Set up will start at about 10:00 AM.

Members of the Schaumburg Emergency Radio Team and SARC will be staffing a table top display to promote our involvement supporting local events such as the Chicagoland Marathon, MS Walk, and Schaumburg Triathlon.  We’ll also be talking about our involvement in Emergency Communications, and what amateur radio is about.  There will be an operating station, and if conditions allow, we may participate in the Simulated Emergency Test.
Hope to see you there!
