The club's Beech Mountain repeater is operational as of 4 p.m. on April 21.
Riley Hatch, KM4GOE, and Danny Horney, KE4AAP, did a first rate job today in getting the Beech Mountain repeater relocated up on the peak of Beech Mountain, near the Pagoda in the Land of Oz. The elevation is approximately 5400 ft above mean sea level. Operating parameters for your radios are 444.575 mhz, +5 mhz offset and 151.4 hz tone on both transmit and receive.
Initial reports from Banner Elk, Rominger, Elk Park, Newland, Linville, Fleetwood, Stony Fork and Boone were very positive as to the coverage. As time passes, I am sure we will hear additional reports from parts of Avery County sough of Sugar Mountain and from the western portions of Watauga County.
This project is one part of the club's on-going commitment using its financial resources to provide reliable communications to support ARES. the Red Cross, local emergency management agencies and area service organizations.
