North Shore Repeater

From K1CHC:

Hi Mike,
I wanted to let you know that the Ipswich Public Safety/Emergency Management Dept as of 1500 hrs this date has a 2 meter repeater up and running. It will be available for all amateurs on a 24/7 basis unless it is needed for emergency ops. It is set up on 145.490/144.890 with a tone of 131.8 in and out. It is located at our main public safety repeater site and should offer excellent coverage. Please feel free to pass the word. This freq was coordinated thru NESMC so hopefully it will work out w/o any interference problems.

Charles Cooper K1CHC
