New 147.375 Repeater in Walton!

Thanks to the efforts of the K8BIG group and Dan KC8ZUM, a new repeater is on the air at the site of the former NKARC repeater in Walton which went silent in December. Receiver sensitivity is a bit low at the moment, but Dan is planning to replace the duplexer in the near future, which should restore the repeater to its full former glory. Thank you Dan!

53.85 Repeater Lives Again!

In more good news, the 53.85 repeater in Walton has also been returned to service, thanks to the efforts of Bob KG4MVN. Bob purchased the repeater from its former owner and agreed to pay the electrical bill. Thank you Bob!

Amateur Exam Study Buddy
