SECN operates the Carolina 440 Linked System which consists of several linked UHF amateur radio repeaters in Raleigh and eastern North Carolina.This includes the Raleigh IRLP reflector which allows linking to other repeater systems outside of the coverage area.
Our primary focus is emergency communication and we are State ARES affiliated for the Counties we serve. We also are available for any SKYWARN use, NC CERT, NC Urban Search and Rescue Task Force teams, and Cary CERT.
We are also focused on public service events, which we assist with communications. Served organizations include the American Cancer Society, American Diabetes Association, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Multiple Sclerosis Society, Special Olympics, Raleigh Rescue Mission and the Tammy Lynn Foundation. We have also provided communications support to local Towns and Cities with parades and other Community events and educational events like the ISS Contact with students. (Phillips Middle School, Chapel Hill, NC), and the Western Carolina University's near space balloon tracking and recovery projects.
