Welcome to

SOUTHEASTERN REPEATER ASSOCIATION, INC. 2014

The SERA is the largest Amateur Radio Repeater Coordinating organization in the United States. We are delighted that you have stopped by. Whether you are looking for specific information or just surfing the web, we encourage you to browse through the information presented here. We hope that in some way this web site will be beneficial to you.

IF YOU DONT SEE YOUR REPEATER LISTED IN THE REPEATER JOURNAL YOU HAVE NOT UPDATED THE INFORMATION IN SERA UCS

As the trustee/or trustee owner of one or more repeaters coordinated with the SouthEastern Repeater Association (SERA), you are hereby notified that the listed repeater(s) will be uncoordinated.

SERA POLICY 13 - TRUSTEE RESPONSIBILITY

The trustee of a coordinated repeater shall notify their SERA Frequency Coordinator of a change in his email or physical address change in the SERA UCS. The trustee should also make the changes in the FCC ULS database, in writing, within ten days of any change in their mailing address. Trustees shall notify their Frequency Coordinator in writing by email, within ten days of the date the repeater ceases operation. If a repeater permanently ceases operation or is sold for relocation, the trustee shall notify their Frequency Coordinator in writing or by email, within ten days of the event.

Failure to keep current in the SERA UCS will be construed as notification that the repeater has ceased operation and the frequencies are available for re-assignment.

NOTE: If the repeater owner or trustee of record fails to keep the SERA UCS current for a period of two consecutive years, the SERA shall automatically de-coordinate the frequency pair. If you have trouble updating your repeater in UCS you should contact the coordinator for your area. This can be found on this website or in the Repeater Journal.

The President's Message to SERA Members:

I welcome you to the SouthEastern Repeater Association (SERA) webite. SERA provides voluntary frequency coordination for amateur radio repeaters in Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi. On this website you will be able to apply for a frequency pair for your repeater by using our new UCS system. As far as I know, we are the only frequency coordinating body to be 100% on line. We are now paperless. Our website also supplies band plans and points of contact for your state. SERA coordinators are trained and certified and they are fellow hams that volunteer their time to put something back into our hobby.

Other items of interest on the website are highlights of our quarterly publication, the SERA Repeater Journal, associate and full member applications, district information, and links to other coordinating bodies. Your membership dues can now be paid directly on our website by using your credit card. We do not charge for our services, however we do appreciate you supporting us by being a full or associate member.

Inquires regarding repeater projects or coordinations should go to your state representative; however, I welcome you to contact me if you feel a need to do so! Unfortunately we are not able to approve every request. This is due to our minimum distance requirements on same and adjacent frequencies. If you are the owner or trustee of a SERA coordinated repeater and have not registered in the new UCS System, it is VERY IMPORTANT that you do this.
