Our repeater is located at the “Swan Lake” site in Liberty Township Ohio. The antenna is located at approximately 473ft above the ground, or approximately 1352ft above sea level.
Currently at the site is running the 70cm repeater, 444.975+ PL 162.2, and our newest addition, the KD8LBS-1 High Profile APRS digipeater, but there are hopes and plans that we may be able to hang a 900MHz machine on there in the future! Only time will tell..
The repeater was owned by Gary, W8SDR and we were given permission to use the machine for our club communications. Sadly, Gary became a Silent Key in September of 2020, but as per his wishes, the repeater was donated to the club. We of course will miss him and we will keep the repeater on the air in his memory.
Below you will see the repeater’s “Control Operator” hiding in the cabinet.
