The new 147.320 repeater shack has been set up by the Montague County Judge for our use. It will host the radio equipment, repeaters, and an auto-start generator.
Thanks to the officials for their support of our presence in the heart of Montague County.
As most of you know the MCARC 2M antenna sits atop the County's 180' public service tower. This move to the county tower was made possible by Judge Benton.
Tower height 180 ft. at the flat top.
Top of Antenna 199 ft. All looks good. Ground elevation is 1140 ft. absl. so that gives us a good elevation in Montague Co, (Approximately 1340 ft. to antenna top).
