Repeater System

The Union County Amateur Radio Club owns, operates, and maintains three Amateur Radio Repeaters in Union County, S.C.

The main repeater operates on a frequency of 145.150 Mhz..  This Repeater System has a wide area of coverage that includes much of the upstate of South Carolina as well as portions of North Carolina. Coverage includes Union, Chester, York, Fairfield, Lexington, Newberry, Laurens, and Spartanburg County as well as portions of Greenville and Cherokee Counties. This machine uses a Motorola Micor base station/repeater with a CAT 300 Controller and a Decibel Products DB 224 folded dipole Omni directional Antenna at 440 feet. We hold a weekly net on Wednesday nights at 9:00pm.

We have another two meter machine which operates on a frequency of 146.685 MHz. This repeater is a local area repeater . It uses a Motorola Micor mobile unit converted to repeater service, a CAT 300 controller, and a Decibel Products DB224 folded dipole omni directional antenna at 150 feet. 

The 442.100 machine consists of a Motorola Micor Mobile radio converted to repeater service with a CAT 200 controller and a Decibel Products DB 224 folded dipole omni directional antenna at 160 feet.

All  repeaters were built and installed by  the Club's technical committee ( primarily Ron Crisp WB4VZN ) and coordinated by the SERA (Southeastern Repeater Association) in which we are a full member. A six meter repeater is soon to be placed on the air.
