W7NEO-RPT4 Digital Cabbage Hill Repeater 444.975

The “Cabbage Hill 975” repeater is our adopted site. It was previously part of another club and that club disbanded. It later went completely off the air due to equipment failure. We replaced the old analog repeater which had been off the air for a number of years with a new Fusion repeater and placed it back on the air as part of our C4FM digital voice system.

W7NEO Analog Weston Mountain Repeater 441.700

The analog repeater on Weston Mountain is somewhat of an experimental repeater. The hope is for it to one day be connected to our remaining analog repeaters via AllStar node. This will help to provide a valuable resource to our local Ham community to those that either haven’t the ability or the desire to explore digital voice communications.

If you aren’t familiar with AllStar, you can find more here.

W7NEO Analog Cabbage Hill Repeater 146.880

The “Cabbage Hill 88” repeater is our adopted site. It was previously part of another club which has since disbanded. It later went completely off the air due to equipment failure, and remained off the air for over three years. We replaced the failed repeater with a new, and much improved repeater thereby putting the repeater back on the air.

W7NEO-RPT2 Digital Chandler Butte Repeater 147.320

Chandler, as we so affectionately refer to it, was our latest repeater project. This site turned out to be an exceptionally long wait, but one we all felt was well worth it. This site fills in a few missing spots and increases our Washington coverage to include the Tri-Cities, lower Yakima Valley, and parts of Yakima, along with a good portion of Highway 395.

W7NEO-RPT1 Digital Roosevelt Repeater 145.190

The Roosevelt repeater was the second repeater to go up. It was a group effort by members and users of the system. It increased the range of the W7NEO C4FM/Yaesu Fusion System significantly. Located just across the Columbia River from Arlington Oregon, visitors to the site are treated to a commanding view of the Columbia River Basin.
