The Capital City Repeater Association (CCRA) invites you to "join-in" on the fun and become part of the friendliest repeater club in Central Ohio. We are proud to operate one of the finest and most active repeater systems in Ohio. CCRA has a rich history of Amateur Radio in Central Ohio and we are working very hard to make and keep it the best. Our recent association with the Central Ohio Digital Interconnect Group has opened new doors into digital radio. CODIG was the first in Ohio with P25, D-Star, DMR and Nexedge digital repeaters.
The following is just a highlight of what we have to offer....
First is our 147.24 MHz 2-meter repeater system. "24" has two receiver sites (with more to come soon) and is controlled by one of the most advanced repeater controllers with digital voting capabilities. The "24" repeater provides excellent mobile and hand held coverage in and around Central Ohio. It can also be used in P25 digital mode. Additional features include: on demand linking to other systems, time, temperature, echo test, DTMF test and a system to allow you to test your equipment and signal quality.
Next is our 145.43 MHz repeater. The "43" machine is a single site repeater located downtown Columbus and can be linked with the 444.55 MHz repeater providing dual band, full duplex access.
The 147.21 MHz is a single site machine that now utilizes the same controller as the "24". The "21" is located in downtown Columbus and is known for its fine audio reproduction.
Most of the CODIG repeaters are listed on the Repeaters page and are open to all licensed users. The CCRA machines can be the home to several nets, including the Central Ohio Traffic Net. The "24" machine is also a backup repeater for the Central Ohio Severe Weather Net. Additionally, all club repeaters are made available to the FCOHARES whenever they need an extra repeater for an event.
If you are interested in hosting a net in Central Ohio, please reach out.
We invite you to use our fine systems and to attend any of our social functions. The annual dues are only $25 per year.
Why not "check us out"? Come to one of our pizza parties or join us on the air! We are certain that you will like what you hear!
Please stop back and check for any updates!
