Welcome to K-Link!
K-Link is a network of 30 full-time and 11 part-time linked Amateur Radio repeaters that span most of the state of Kansas. We are a service-oriented group dedicated to providing the best wide-area coverage in Kansas for ARES, RACES, and Skywarn. Outside of emergency communications, we also encourage local users and highway travelers to use the system to share ideas and keep in touch.
Note: All K-Link repeaters are WIDE band. Make sure your radios are set for WIDE band on each repeater. If you are set to Narrow band (or Half-deviation), your audio will be too weak. All-mode radios should have the mic gain set at 50% or less or your FM audio will be over-driven.
Our system is 100% privately funded and made available thanks to the hard work of many individuals who have dedicated many hours of labor and donations from people that use the system. Our continued growth and maintenance depends upon the support of the people that use and benefit from the system. We appreciate your support.
K-Link is open to all properly licensed amateur radio operators. If you’re not already a licensed ham and would like to get in on the fun of using the original world-wide social network, here are some resources to help you get your license:
- License Volunteer Examiners: Central Kansas Amateur Radio Club (Salina Kansas). Read their helpful .pdf guide by clicking here.
- ARRL’s “Getting Started” information packet.
- QRZ.com online practice exams.
PLEASE READ THIS if you use a Yaesu mobile or HT to learn how to disable the WIRES feature (that you inadvertently activated causing people to miss the first three seconds of all of your transmissions).
