W7NEO Analog Weston Mountain Repeater 441.700
The analog repeater on Weston Mountain was originally setup for a couple of local UPS drivers so they could talk to one another as they were returning back to their home bases. Both have since retired, with one now a silent key. Since that time it has become a local mainstay for many local Hams to use and enjoy. Additionally, because of its excellent coverage, it is used as a backup for the Walla Walla Emergency Communications folks. Currently this repeater is connected to our remaining analog repeaters via AllStar. All this helps to provide a valuable resource to our local Ham community for 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.
