W4WSM Repeater system

Bowling Green, Kentucky Site

 


147.165 out / 147.765 in     Tone 100hz

Just a mile from downtown Bowling Green '165' is a high profile repeater with the receive antenna at 1030 feet above sea level.

The repeater is running a Kenwood TKR-750 driving a TE Systems repeater amp. 165 is the 3rd machine in the system established in the 90's.

At this time 165 is open receive and doesn't require a tone to access. There is a 100hz tone on the transmitter full time.

Thanks to Steve, K4WKU this machine has Echolink connectivity. Search his call on Echolink to connect.


444.10 out / 449.10 in

444.10 was the first repeater in the system and first went on the air about 1986. It is now operating as a mixed mode P25/FM machine. The repeater is a Motorola Quantar. For FM use it is using standard wide mode with an open squelch. It is transmitting a 100 hz tone so when you set up your radio be sure to run 100 hz tone so you will not hear the P25 signal when it's being used.

A NAC of 293 is being used on P25.
