Welcome to K-Link!

K-Link is a network of 31 full-time and 11 part-time linked FM analog repeaters in the Amateur Radio Service that provide coverage across most of the state of Kansas and southeast Nebraska. We are a service-oriented group dedicated to providing the best wide-area coverage in Kansas for ARES 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.

Important:
*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.

*Please disable all Beginning Of Transmission and End Of Transmission (“roger beep”) tones!

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, you can find some resources to help you get your license here.

 PLEASE READ THIS if you use a Yaesu mobile or HT to learn how to disable the WIRES feature which always gets inadvertently activated, causing people to miss the first three seconds of all of your transmissions. (Download .pdf here)
