Repeater Features - Wide Area Coverage
One of the best features of the repeater
is it's wide coverage area. With the addition of the remote receive
sites, the repeater's capability to pick up that weak signal improved
dramatically. The repeater system currently has three remote sites.
The 400 foot Winona Lake location that improved our coverage to the east. And both the 615 foot Mishawaka, and the 300 ft. South Bend receive sites adds coverage to the north. Depending
on your equipment, of course, the repeater system, with the remote receivers
are able to hear, and be heard for much of the Northern Indiana area,
and parts of other adjoining states. This means that you don't have to
end your QSO when you reach the city limits. Also the wide coverage range,
allows more amateurs to reach the repeater, and therefore provides for
a greater number of possible contacts.
