Yes there is a node in Oswego County and we have had an ear out to find a link to the Syracuse area.  Our main node is KA2AON and that is linked to EMO Wayne and the Oswego County EMO, K2QQY.  We are currently waiting for the County to decide whether or not we will get  space on their new tower or nort. The node equipment belong to the County and therefore must stay on County property.
K2JFK is a SK.  Not sure of the W2QYT site.
Years ago we had a link to Watertown but that went away in the early 2000’s.

I have recently assumed the position of Radio Officer for the County and am trying to re-invigorate our digital systems and am glad to hear that there are many out there that can help.  If there is any fairly sure sites for linking I need to get that on the proposed site lan before the County makes a firm decision.  As you know, they will only allow licensed climbers be on their tower and so it makes adding links, etc, a time consuming adventure.

Feel free to contact me with any suggestions or questions and I will push to improve the system.

I have become a "turn-key" type of guy, meaning if someone builds it and tells me what to buy, I will do so and put Jefferson in the loop.  I know that is not the right answer,  but if it gets us. . both the bigger us meaning those in the group, and us as in Jefferson County,  then I am open.
