Equipment consists of a GE Master III repeater and duplexer from Wacom. The Controller is an RTCM (Radio Thin Client Module) which allows us to do the radio over IP that we utilize on the rebuilt connection repeaters. We pay $120 per year rent for our Akron site.
The VHF antenna is a commercial Decibel Products DB224 VHF vertical antenna. The 145.400 Mhz repeater site is easily accessible year around. This is one of the few sites we maintain which doesn’t require 4 wheel drive access. The pictures below are actually for the previous repeater site, we do not have pictures of the new site yet.b
