The Marquette Repeater Association is a

beautiful Upper Peninsula on the southern shore of Lake Superior in Marquette County, the largest county east of the
We have two repeaters: 146.97 (vhf) and 444.80 (uhf). We have Echolink on the 444.800 repeater
with the node number 394682. The link is KE8IL-R. Echolink is open for anyone to use, so
if you're in this area use the C key then the node number you want to connect to. (Example:
C123456). To disconnect, use the D key when you're done. The star ( * ) key will give you
the connect status of the Echolink. Additional Echolink information can be viewed here. The Echolink is open to the World. Feel free to use
Both repeaters are located on the Alltel cellular phone tower pictured above, which is located at the
top of Marquette Mountain ski hill on the south
side of the city. The repeaters are open repeaters and are very active as we welcome anyone to
make use of them when in the area. The repeaters are used during emergencies and severe
weather. We also operate in conjunction with another club in Marquette County, which is the
Hiawatha Amateur Radio Association.
The Marquette Repeater Association, along with the Hiawatha Amateur Radio Association, provide
communications to events throughout the year. Two popular events include the U.P. 200 Sled Dog Race, which is a 3 day 200-mile race through the
central part of the Upper Peninsula. It's held annually in February. Also, there is the
Noquemanon Ski Marathon held in January; a 51K - 25K
cross-country ski race. In August, the clubs provide communications for the Ore To Shore Mountain Bike Epic, which uses the same course
as the ski race.
