Welcome to the PAPSAR club! We are based out of Palmerton, PA USA. And linked the the K3ALG allstar repeater 448.265 -5 210.7
And last but not least an introduction from me. My name is Aaron Groover co-founder of the club. I have been in EMS and Dispatching for 15 years. I currently work at Eastern PA Medcom and also Trappe FIre Co. in Montgomery County. I have been around amatuer radio pretty much my entire childhood. I was brought into this hobby by my father after a wonderful gentleman/family friend/co-worker KG3I got him involved just by making a contact in the parking lot at Lehighton Ambulance.
Recently my father the other co-founder, W3NTT passed away on 6/10/2020 doing what he loved to do, listen to the radio. Before he passed we had plans to start a club for our fellow friends, past colleagues in the business that we are in. I made a promise to him to keep this project going as this was his dream for many years. I took it upon myself and the help of you guys to continue his goal and make him proud.
I can not thank you guys enough for what you all do. Over the last several years, I have had compassion and respect for the hobby and the operators I talk to. Please help to keep this growing. We all know it's going to take a while, but we will get there. Feel free to throw out my call. I'm always on the air.
