Alma VHF Repeater

Since last summer (2019), the Elmira Radio Club has a VHF repeater in Alma, at 147.255 MHz, with a positive offset of 600 KHz, and a PL tone of 131.8. The repeater is at Ken VE3KCY’s place. It is NOT currently connected to IRLP, nor is it linked to any of the other ERC repeaters. There are plans to eventually link this repeater to either the existing ERC UHF or VHF repeater in Elmira. A big Thank-You to Tony VE3DWI for loaning this repeater and duplexer to the Club.
