2014 Move 440 Repeater

Club Activities - 2014 Moving the 440 Repeater

Fall of 2014.  The Pawnee Amateur Radio Club moved the 440 repeater to a new location.  Now located 10 miles South of Columbus on the top of the bluff on the old ATT communications tower.  The 440 repeater is using a temporary antenna while we "prove the concept" of using the new location.  During the Spring of 2015 the club hopes to raise the antenna to new heights by mounting it higher on the tower structure.  Go to the "442.050 WA0COL" link at the left to get the repeater operating details.
Update: 11/01/2014 - the 442.050 repeater has been moved and it is operational.  Thanks to everyone who worked to make this move possible! 

AC0DN and AC0TF moved the 442.050 repeater (shown on the left) to the new site.  The WA0COL D-Star equipment is located in the two racks to the right of the 440 repeater.
