If you regularly monitor the local repeaters in Cedar Rapids you may have noticed a new callsign (W0WSV) on a few of them. Over the past few months we have been working with the Cedar Rapids Repeater Association in their desire to donate their repeaters to CVARC upon dissolving their group. On January 1 we completed the donation of the repeater equipment from the CRRA to CVARC so the repeater callsigns were changed to CVARC’s second callsign, W0WSV. The W0WSV callsign was chosen since it has been unused for some time now and also to differentiate the repeaters based on physical location of the equipment.
On behalf of CVARC, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the CRRA for the generous donation of equipment and resources to our club.
