Henry Savage Ham Radio Club (W4RFR)



The Henry Savage Ham Radio Club (W4RFR) was established in November 2006 to promote the development, operation, maintenance, and use of repeater technology on amateur radio frequencies and through the Internet in Middle Tennessee and beyond. Our club is named for Henry Savage (W4RFR) who was a pioneer of ham radio and television technology for many years.

The W4RFR/R repeater is the primary repeater of the club. It is a GE Mastr II repeater on 145.11MHz with a -600KHz offset and a 250.3Hz PL tone (changed from 151.4Hz on 2014-03-15). It is located on top of the 3322 West End Avenue building in West Nashville, TN, USA. The repeater is Echolink enabled and is node number 237900.

This site is a compendium of information about the repeater, Echolink, Ham Radio licensing exams, and just about everything else we could think of to include here. Please contact us if you have questions or comments about the site or club operations.
