For Echolink, just connect to K4EX-R (node 922106). We accept connections from simplex nodes, repeaters, and all Echolink clients. Hopefully this will allow more hams to link up, and those of you who do not have access over the air can still participate using a desktop application.
(note – there is a callsign validation process involved in getting your echolink account setup)

Calling ARES members.
It is time to prepare the Pasco ARES/RACES NCS schedule for the new year. Currently, ALL of the weeks in 2015 are open. If you would like to host the net on a particular week, please contact me, “Phil” KM4DPV at (my call sign)-ATSIGN-”gmail.com“. As the slots fill up, I will provide updates to the webmaster of this site to keep you posted. We are looking for NCS-es in all parts of Pasco County, to host the net on EITHER the “New Port Richey” repeater or the “Land-O-Lakes” repeater, 146.67 or 145.33 MHz, respectively. We need to exercise both repeaters and discover who can reach what. We will also test the plan of talking Simplex on 146.670 MHz for use if BOTH repeaters fail. I look forward to hearing from you. Phil, KM4DPV

EPARS sponsors a mailing list or “reflector” that allows members to send e-mail messages to everyone in the group. A single e-mail to the group address will send the message to all other group members. This can be helpful for finding an expert on a particular topic, listing an item for sale, or quickly getting out a message of general interest.
The list is part of Yahoo Groups. Messages are not only e-mailed to group members, but also kept available on a web site, allowing members to review past postings.
There are two ways to join. The simplest is just to send a message to email@example.com . Make sure your return address is the address to which you would like the group messages to come.
You should get a confirming e-mail back. Note the instructions that it will include on how to post a message and how to unsubscribe. A common mistake people make when trying to unsubscribe is to send their request to the entire group. Note that the address to use to drop out of the group (unsubscribe) is different from the one used to post a message.
The second way to subscribe is through the Yahoo Groups web site. Go to https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/epars_info/info and follow the instructions to subscribe. If you are not already signed up with Yahoo Groups, you will need to choose an ID and password. Signing up in this manner will also give you access to message history, member list, pictures that have been posted, and other features.
