The latest FM38 repeater went on the air over the Labor Day weekend in Lake Geneva, WI.

Frequency is 441.525MHz + Same tone as the rest of the network 123.0Hz.

Tower is not super big (225’) but the ground elevation above sea level is a very impressive (1170’). This puts the antenna at almost (1400’).

We are looking forward to some folks providing coverage reports as they travel through the area. Already have nice reports from Brad KC9EUU, Tom N9BBG and Howard KC4ZYC.

Many thanks to the guys that assisted during the installation!
