The 444.900 Repeater is two Kenwood TK-8180 Mobiles using Wacom BPBR duplexers and a Diamond X-50A antenna with 1/2 inch hardline.
The 6 meter radio is a Kenwood TK-6110 turned down to 50 watts, using LMR-400 and a Ringo AR-6 antenna.
Echolink on the system comes from KB3AWQ's home using a radio hooked up to a computer.
A CAT-200 controller is being used of 444.900 and the link port is connected to the Kenwood TK-6110 6 & 10 meter radio.
When a signal comes from 6 or 10 meters you with hear 2 beeps as a courtesy beep. You will hear 1 beep when it comes from 147.300 or 444.900 and if the link is off there will be no beeps.

Support of the hobby and this system. Since inception in 2001 we have not had dues paying membership as the plan was to keep things going by donation since that's how it all began anyway. Donations are always welcome as there are some expenses as the site for the 6 meter and UHF repeater site is not free and of course neither is equipment to be fixed or upgraded. Contact KB3AWQ for more information.
News and Old News
12/11/15 - The 444.900 Repeater now has a Advanced Receiver Research P432VDG Preamp - working very well
12/9/17 - Kenwood TK-6110 installed for 6 meters and is also modded for 10 meters.
12/24/18 - Added Receive Only for 29.600 PL 100.0 and 52.525 PL 100.0. These are the National Simplex Calling Frequencies for FM 10 meters and 6 meters. The PL tones are to keep any noise bursts out etc. Some use 100.0 hz which I also encourage. The Ringo AR-6 antenna is being used so 10 meters may have some signal degradation. 51.520 PL 173.8 Simplex is still 2 way. Echolink can be used if your out of the repeater coverage as everything is heard on Echolink and the repeaters.
