At that time Jim was teaching school on Thursday evenings. Understandably, this request was denied. And so Jim made the decision to see if there was enough interest in the Xenia area to start another club.
He chose to start a Xenia radio club and sent out a distribution requesting every ham in Greene County to attend. In the internet was pretty much just an experiment for colleges and the military, and so It Jim had to compile the list of addresses of local Hams the hard way, so it took him considerable time to gather this information. After several weeks of chasing names, Jim sent out a request to meet and discuss starting a radio club in Xenia to every ham in Greene County.
I was quite astounded at the turnout but at the same time very pleased. One meeting after another, the founding members to be put it all together, including electing officers, and after several months decided to investigate getting a repeater. At that time there were no 2 meter frequencies available but had an ace in my pocket, But Jim was able to persuade a ham from one of the Dayton clubs to part with the Funding for such a project was yet another threshold that had to be overcome. At one of the early meetings a proposal was presented and asked for input on how we could acquire enough money to build the start of our system..
In less than one year they had the system up and running and covering most of Greene County using portable radios. It was truly an amazing repeater at the time and got great reviews on its coverage from the Dayton radio clubs. In and around we solicited the Greene County Administrator to allow us to co-locate several receive sites at current Public Safety locations. With the assistance of Mike Wolf of W S Electronics, who was also active with the club as a supporting non-ham, we were able to build and install three remote receivers all around Greene County.
At the time we put this in place, no other amateur radio organization in the state had accomplished the same feat. It improved the incoming coverage to a huge degree and we had then and still get compliments regarding our stellar coverage of the county. In or about the year purchased the repeater and frequency pair Over many years, since our beginning in late , we have continued to grow and share a great relationship with all the Public Safety organizations we serve.
