146.760 Repeater on Blacktail Mtn Being Taken Down This Week

By W7YP - Posted on 06 June 2022

The club repeater (146.760) on Blacktail Mountain will be taken down later this week due to a forced relocation. Spectrum owns the site hosting us and they're abandoning it and need us to retrieve our equipment ASAP.

They have already abandoned their Sandy Hill site, necessitating our retrieving our equipment which we recently secured; thus, the 147.380 repeater is already off the air.

We are currently exploring options for relocating those repeaters and placing them back in service. This web page will keep you informed as to our progress.

Meetings are held in the conference room of that facility.

Many thanks to the OES staff and Sheriff Brian Heino for their much-appreciated hospitality.
