Many HAM operators
have joined the ranks of the people who love to bring their cars to
local venues here in Central Florida. There have even been HAM's
that have gone out and bought cars to join in on the Friendship and
Camaraderie that ensues at such events as well as "Cruisers"
Internet by using EchoLink, you the HAM operator can join in on some
of the fun, no matter where you are. You will find the OTARC members
on the N4OTC Repeater, 442.1 + 103.5 enc/dec, on a Saturday from about 1:00 to 10:00 PM. The
N4OTC-R is the look up on EchoLink the node number is 371453. This
repeater is often linked via RF to the N4ARG 147.210 +.6 103.5 enc/dec,
Repeater and the N4HHA 443.400 +5 411 DPL Repeater at Orlando
International Airport. It is also connected to the Echolink Node
N4ARG-R #47210 and IRLP Node #4338 and a connection to the KC2GUM-R
in Forked River, NJ. We have also added a second repeater on the 2
meter band the 146.7000- 103.5 enc/dec, it carries the N4GUS call
sign and will be available on Echolink and IRLP soon.
If you are an old car
fanatic and would like to learn more about HAM Radio, stay tuned, we
might even have some classes coming up in the future.
This is not a paid
advertisement or endorsement for any of the over 75 Shops or the 18
Thrilling Rides nor the 8 delicious restaurants. It is an
endorsement of the people you will meet, like the ones that "Dress"
for each Holiday or have a theme for their car, such as the "Blues
Mobile", the friends you will make and the Nostalgic feeling you
will have viewing the 100's of cars in our favorite "Home Town".
Heck you might even see Boss Hog following Roscoe chasing Daisy and the
"General Lee". Even 4 "Herbies"
or more, have been spotted on the Brick Streets of Old Town.
