SBARC Repeaters: New Antennas, New Locations, Much Better Coverage

As of 1000 MDT, October 15, 2014, both of the SBARC repeaters are back on the air with antennas mounted on the recently erected Ruidoso Fire Department towers.  We thank RFD Chief Harlan Vincent for inviting us to install our antennas on these towers.

The antennas’ H.A.T. is the primary change,
+50 ft @ Alto Crest and +40 ft @ Camelot,
and they are also moved away from structures
that previously impaired coverage

We Administer License Exams any Saturday!
(or just about any other day.*)

If you’re ready to take an exam
but just can’t fit someone else’s schedule into yours,

give us 48 hours’ notice by sending an email to

  Then join us for our weekly breakfast gathering on Saturdays at El Paraiso Mexican Restaurant in the Sierra Mall, Ruidoso.
We start showing up when the restaurant opens at 8AM and testing begins about 1 hour later.
Meet friends or make new ones, have a good breakfast, take the test, and leave with your new license on its way.

How cool is that?

*For days other than Saturdays, we can arrange the date and time with you.
