Madison Tower View
The new Madison repeater (444.475) was installed over the weekend and seems to be working well. The repeater antenna is at 385' overlooking Madison, should provide excellent portable coverage. We have already had mobile reports from Janesville which is pretty cool!

Many thanks to John W9VG and Brad KC9EUU for providing extra muscle and assistance during the installation.
