PDARC (W0OJY) operates four repeaters (Yankton, Vermillion, Springfield, and Spencer, NE) that are linked together to cover a large portion of the club’s service area. A fifth club operated System Fusion digital repeater is located near Tabor, SD. Access to the digital repeater is either over-the-air or by using an MMDVM hotspot, running PiStar software, connected to YSF88411 PDARC.
The Siouxland Amateur Radio Association (SARA) operates the “97” K0TFT repeater on 146.970 with a -0.6 MHz offset and tone of 110.9 hz. This repeater has base station coverage in much of our club’s area along with mobile coverage as you get closer to Sioux City.
The South Dakota Amateur Radio Council operates a linked repeater system that covers much of South Dakota which is known as SD-Link.. Our local area link to the system is the W0SD repeater on Turkey Ridge at 444.975 with a tone of 146.2. It is continuously linked with all SD-Link repeaters across the state of SD.
These frequencies are what the repeaters use. For example, the Sioux Falls UHF transmits on 444.825 so you’d have to listen on that frequency and transmit on 449.825. (Updated 02/25/2019)
