Home of N4LMC, the Lookout Mountain Amateur Radio Club

 

We’re a very small club, we strive to provide all modes of communication to the HAMs in Chattanooga, TN, NW GA, NE AL and surrounding areas.  There are so many different bands and modes, we concentrate on the repeaters and nodes because that’s the part of the hobby that we love being involved in.  We want to bring the connected analog and digital modes to the areas around us that have not had access in the past.  Our vision is to enhance amateur radio by positioning a variety of equipment throughout the area.  We work with local enthusiasts discussing theories, communication models, types of equipment, gadgetry, and more.

Our website offers a wide variety of information.  New information and resources are being updated and/or added all the time.  Take a look at the Main Menu and just drill down through all of the choices to check out what we have to offer.

At this time we offer a wide variety of repeaters and nodes that encompass Analog as well as Digital modes.  Our repeaters run under several call signs.  N4LMC belongs to the Lookout Mountain ARC, W4GTA belongs to the Tri-States ARC, W4PL belongs to the Chattanooga Old Timers ARS & W4RRG belongs to the Rebel Repeater Group.  All of these are calls that I/we are authorized to use by those respective clubs and/or trustees.  A HUGE Thank You to all of them!

Sunday, 7 PM Eastern on the LMARC Digital Systems,  the Young Operators Digital Voice Net.

Net control will be 9 year old, Extra class Danielle, KE8JNU. This net is geared toward topics of interest for school age young people, either licensed or 3rd party with a licensed operator present.  But even though this is focused on younger operators, all are welcome to participate.  The goal is to enhance discussion of ideas while fostering the development of operating principles and techniques for young people.  Let’s help our young people get interested in our hobby, join in, contribute, Elmer them!

A brief note: The key to success on the air is described by one word: Courtesy.  There’s no other way to explain how hundreds of thousands of Amateur Radio Operators can share the same radio frequencies all over the world with minimum interference and conflict.    If you keep courtesy at the front of your mind you’ll rarely have difficulty on the air.  An attentive and courteous operator is welcome on our systems!

With that said, we really want for YOU to
have fun and enjoy this hobby!
