Repeater Info for the W2WCR system

The Club is currently Trustee of the Prospect Mt. repeaters, using it's call sign, W2WCR. Bernie N1NDN, is our license trustee.




Repeater Etiquette

When using the system, please leave gaps in between transmissions to allow the system to reset to avoid timing out. Also leaving gaps in between transmissions will eliminate stations constantly "doubling" or transmitting at the same time. Thank you for your cooperation.

This linked repeater system is used for RACESARESSkyWarn, and to support the local Red Cross Chapter in times of need with radio coordination for disaster management. When not being used for community events or emergencies, these repeaters serve radio amateurs by allowing them to stay in touch and be of service to visitors in the area by providing local information whenever possible.


  • Multi-County Races Net meets every Tuesday at 7pm - This net is for registered RACES members only. You can be registered in any county to participate. We usually practice sending a short formal message and talk about emergency communications message handling.
  • Tech Net - meets every Wednesday at 7pm - This is a fun question and answer roundtable. We ask a few questions from the license pool and hams bring questions they may have to the table. Any licensed amateur operator is welcome to join.
  • Rag-Chew Net - every Thursday at 7pm. This is a Rag-Chew net, however if you just want to check in and leave it at that, we’d love to hear from you. Any stations, Base, mobile or portable – in any county – any state are all welcome to call. This net is open to all radio-amateurs. If at any time during the net there is any emergency or priority traffic please just say the word BREAK and this net will be suspended until such traffic has been handled.
  • Capital District Weather Net meets every morning at 7am - all are encouraged to check in and give any weather info or road conditions they may have. Check out more info below.

Other Local Repeaters

There are a couple of other local repeaters, not owned by Warren County, to check out, these repeaters are both part of a linked system- N1NDN @ 449.775 - 114.8 PL (Queensbury, near Exit  19) and N2ACF 444.450 + 114.8PL (Prospect Mountain, Lake George)


Capital District Weather Net Info

Each morning we hold the capital district weather net from 7:00 to 7:20am on the linked repeater system. This info is input into the Albany Weather system and used for various forecasting and reporting needs. Any and all weather or road condition reports are welcome.

The regulars to the net report things like

  • precipitation,
  • weather code ( see the chart below for weather codes. )
  • cloud cover
  • high temperature
  • low temperature
  • current temperature
  • new snow fall
  • residual snow on the ground
  • wind speed and direction
  • barometric pressure


We record the data form the last 24 hours ( from 7am to 7am ) Most any way to check the weather at your location will work.  There are many different weather stations available. To record precipitation a good rain gauge will help.

Here is a good place to learn to use and buy a rain gauges.
