The Minuteman Repeater Association announced that a new 222 MHz repeater is now operational from Slygo Hill in Marlborough. The repeater, along with a duplexer, was recently donated to the club; the MMRA board of directors voted to accept the donation at its last meeting. The repeater currently operates on 224.880 MHz under the callsign K1IW. In the near future, it will be coupled to the SCOM 7K controller on the replacement 147.270 repeater, at which time it will change to the club callsign W1MRA. According to MMRA president Bob DeMattia, K1IW, this is the club’s fourteenth repeater.
Thanks, The Minuteman, Volume 32, Number 2, November 2004
