After almost 40 years of service, the original 147.135 repeater hardware has been retired.


The original repeater, a Spectrum Communications SCR-1000, first took to the air on December 21, 1980, at 11:35 AM. The following members were in attendance for this occasion-


George, W3PFD Leo, KB3L Bob, N3AZZ

Stan, KA3FYE Dave, KA3CNP Dave, K3NPX

Glen, KA3DJO


The repeater log indicates that in addition to being used for RTTY, it served as a spare for the 146.85 repeater.

It logged many trips across the road over the years when the 146.85 hardware needed repair or upgrading.


In addition to those previously mentioned, the following contributed their time and talents to prepare the site, set the antenna, and install the hardline-


Don, WB3HWB Bob, N3ACE Tim, WA3ZJE (now WJ3E)

Jim, KB3LU Jim, KA3EBF Vic, W3VYH

Bob, WB3LJR


Today, September 24, 2020, at approximately 11:30 AM, the new 147.135 hardware went live. A Kenwood commercial repeater was installed and mated to an Arcom RC-210 controller. Receiver performance appears to be much improved based on initial tests.


The following members of the engineering staff were in attendance-


Sean, K3UKE Dan, KB3VSP Dom, N3EJL

Mike, AA3WV


Please try out the new hardware and let us know how it is working for you.

Here's to the next 40 years.


73, K3UKE
