Notes: This is a digital-only, full-featured WIRES-X linked (using a Yaesu HRI-200) repeater, often found connected to the AMERICA-LINK room; however, users are invited to select WIRES-X rooms that suit their wants and needs. Due to detected SWR issues, the repeater is currently operating in a reduced power configuration (25 Watts out of the transmitter) until the elevated SWR problem can be troubleshot and resolved. Coverage reports and operational observation comments are welcomed. Not linked, but co-located with the 224.900 '-' KG4Y (analog FM) and the 145.390 '-' K4USS YSF (AMS analog / digital) repeaters.
Coordination: T-MARC
