Repeater Move Update:
The W6AF Repeater is currently in the process of being moved to a new host location. The new site will be moving from the Kelly Ridge area, to a location about 7 – 10 miles south of Kelly Ridge, in the foothills at about the 1400ft elevation. The new site is expected to increase the footprint slightly. The OARS group expects the new site to be on the air within the next 3 – 6 weeks. The frequencies as well as the PL tone are expected to stay the same as what they have always been.
