The Puget Sound Repeater Group is a non-profit organization that maintains and operates a 2-meter FM Amateur Radio repeater system in the Seattle area, serving primarily North Seattle, from about Downtown through Shoreline, and east to about Bothell (although we’ve had people use the repeater regularly from as far away as Olympia and Everett). We currently have more than 200 members. The repeater is maintained by member volunteers for use by members and non-members alike. The repeater hosts several regular nets. Anyone with an Amateur license is welcome to use the repeater.
The next PSRG Board meeting will be on Sunday, June 11th at 1:30pm!
We have arranged to reschedule the next board meeting to the following Sunday and the Cafe has asked us to shift our meeting time to 1:30pm to avoid the bulk of the lunch crowd. Their new later opening hours also relieve the pressure we had to leave by 2:30 (their previous closing time). If you want to get something ordered before the meeting, please try to arrive after 12:30pm or closer to 1pm.
