K1PQ Repeater 70cm Install and Club April 14, 2017 13:18

Hello BridgeCom,

Our original 444.950 repeater was an old Motorola unit setup and operated by N1BUG. It worked but required too much time and attention. Our club voted to continue operations on 444.950 so we bought the BridgeCom and now operate under the club call. The repeater itself has operated without problem since installation.

We are looking for more activity on the repeater, can you help?  We operate on 444.950+ and 103.5 tone, plus Echolink K1PQ-R 896607.  Please let your audience know that the repeater is on the air and looking for users. 

Our club has offered license classes annually for years with VE testing immediately following. We produced three new Hams this year. You can find us on FB at K1PQ and Piscataquis Amateur Radio Club. We also have a presence on QRZ.com and keep a log there.

Bill, KB1WEA

Thanks for the info and pic Bill.  Hey everyone, check in on the repeater if your in the area or hit it on Echolink.  Let's see if we can make this BridgeCom BCR-40U Repeater sing!

73,
