SERA Districts - GA

A Note From Your Director

Welcome to the Georgia District of SERA. My name is Ron Johnson, WB4GWA, your Georgia Director. I am delighted to be able to serve the needs of repeater owners and operators here in Georgia, so please feel free to contact me if I can ever be of service to you regarding the affairs of SERA here in Georgia. John Davis, WB4QDX has joined me as the Vice-Director for Georgia and assists me with frequency coordinations and other SERA duties. John Talipsky, Jr. continues to serve as our Repeater Journal Correspondent and does an excellent job.

Our goal is to approach the coordination of repeaters throughout Georgia in a professional manner and to represent SERA’s guidelines regarding all inquiries and requests in a timely manner. Frequency coordination is not an easy task, especially when you are trying to coordinate a repeater in a heavily populated area. SERA has a set of guidelines it uses, which we call our Coordination Policy and Guidelines . Once you complete the on-line request and submit it, the coordination request is immediately forwarded to the Georgia Coordinator. The information you supply is put into the coordination software program which queries the existing databse of repeaters to see if the frequency pair you have requested is available for your location. If that frequency is not available, efforts will be made to search for any available frequency so that SERA may coordinate a repeater for you. If a repeater will coordinate (according to our coordination policy and guidelines) at your proposed location, SERA will coordinate it "it plain and simple." The total process from the time you send submit your request until you are issued your official coordination can take up to 30 days from start to finish.

We encourage your membership in SERA. You now may join on-line, by using your credit card, at http://www.sera.org/credit_renew_route.htm If you have any questions or comments about Georgia SERA matters, please feel free to contact me.

Thank You
Ron Johnson, WB4GWA
Georgia SERA Director
