REPEATER NEWS... The 145.11 repeater is back! A new feature on 5.11 is the National Weather Service link. Press 992 to listen to NOAA weather radio, and 990 to turn it off. Remember, use 107.2 CTCSS for access. The repeater is still at the site near USI at 400 feet. Also, watch for upgrades to 443.925 and the 145.15 transmitter very soon. New code sheets will be issued for 443.925/146.925 as soon as upgrades are completed. The switch from 147.43 to 147.135 has been made at Seymour. The receive frequency will soon be changed also.
