Hi my name is Tim. For the past 3 years I have been gathering equipment to provide a Amateur Radio Repeater in the rural area where I live. Through very kind people I have been able to gather alot of misc. equipment, But not enough of What I need to put this project together. I have also learned that scrapping a repeater is not a very good long term solution.
In this rural part of Arkansas there is not good accurate local weather available. and emergency communications are sometimes sketchy. I would like to provide a reliable Ham Repeater and weather station for our area. I also work very closely with our local Volunteer fire departments and EMS. If enough money is raised here I will be able to provide emergency backup communications for that purpose.
With much appreciated help I have acquired a small shack and tower which I have shown in the photos.
