About Us:

The Mount Vernon Amateur Radio Club (MVARC) is the largest group of amateur radio operators in Knox County, Ohio.

We exist to promote amateur radio, serve our members, educate the community and be a resource for our served agencies, Skywarn and our local ARES group.

Our primary repeater is located just north of Mount Vernon on St. Route 3. It operates on a frequency of 146.790- with a PL of 71.9 and operates under the club call sign of K8EEN.


Our secondary repeater is located at Knox Community Hospital and operates on a frequency of 444.600 MHz (+5 MHz with PL of 71.9 Hz). It also has the call sign of K8EEN.

The secondary repeater is System Fusion. Currently it is setup as a local repeater only, but our plans are to have it connected to the internet soon.
