The 470 ARG was created back in 2007 at the Ten Tec Hamfest, a group of folks from several states wanted to oget together, once a week and see how each of was doing, talk about amateur radio, new gear we may have got, and just good old QSs while enjoying the fellowship between us. It started out with 14 of us and since then has had over 127 check in's on the net, with 1116 members and growing every day. O)ver the years we've added a Trivia Challenge , Tech Talk, Question & Answer section, but most of all at the beginning of the net a Invocation and Prayer Request ..
Our Net Runs From 7:30 pm EST / 2330 UTC for about 3.5 hours on the 145.470 repeater of Tim Berry WB4GBI.
Utilizing several locations throughout the area, covering several different Amateur Radio bands, the WB4GBI Repeater system provides East Tennessee with ample repeater service, for both the casual user and the emergency volunteer.
