Meeting Change

Hello Everyone, The CNYARC needs to change their meeting location for the next two months. We will be meeting at Denny’s in Oneida, NY at 6 pm on Tuesday Nov. 2, 2021 and Tuesday December 7th, 2021. We have had some issues with members being able to hear the meeting so we are moving for the last to meetings of 2021.

Thank you,

Meeting Time Change

This is just a short notice to let everyone know that we have changed our meeting time to 6 pm (1800 hrs.) on the first Tuesday of the month for the remainder of 2021.

We are open to all guests wishing to join our meeting and learn about amateur radio and what our club does. We are very welcoming and easy to get along with.

We hope to see you at our next meeting on Oct., 5th 2021 at 6 pm. Arrive a little early and get a good set. You might have a good time and we are planning some upcoming presentations soon.

Thank you and stay safe.

International Space Station to be in Cross-Band Repeater Mode for Field Day

The Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) cross-band repeater will be available for ARRL Field Day, June 26 – 27. Contacts will count toward Field Day bonus points as satellite contacts and Field Day contacts.


Field Day rules limit stations to one contact on any single-channel FM satellite. Note that contacts made during Field Day by ISS crew would only count for contact credit, but not for satellite bonus points. ISS cross-band repeater contacts are also valid AMSAT Field Day satellite contacts.

The ARISS cross-band repeater uplink is 145.990 MHz (67 Hz tone), with a downlink of 437.800 MHz.

ARISS suggests that those unfamiliar with the ISS repeater may want to practice with it prior to Field Day. ARISS had planned to switch modes to the Automatic Packet Reporting System (APRS) during the second week of June, but this won’t happen until after the first ARISS school contact following ARRL Field Day. The ARISS ham station will be off-air during spacewalks on June 16 and June 20.
