Club Call Signs
We currently have three club call signs in use:
WX5CRP was acquired for use at the National Weather Service for the ham station at that location. Previously the club used the N5CCW call for National Weather Service events.
N5CRP was acquired for use on all club owned repeaters and for use at special events and contests such as Field Day.
W5LEX is used exclusively on the USS Lexington.
The club owns and operates 3 coordinated repeaters in the Corpus Christi area. Both of the VHF repeaters require a PL tone of 107.2 and the UHF repeater requires a PL tone of 103.5.
