Members-Only Area!



The Laurel Highlands VHF Society, Inc. owns and operates the Acme repeater, located on the Chestnut Ridge in southwestern Pennsylvania.

The Acme Repeater operates on 146.67 (-600) at a power output of approximately 12 Watts.

The repeater is sited at an elevation of 2100 ft. This, coupled with its 65-ft. tower puts the signal out...WAY OUT! It is not uncommon to hear stations in eastern and central Ohio, as well as western New York state. And when the band is up....look out! We've had stations from central Ontario to Arkansas QSO through our machine!

The N3QZU Six-Meter repeater also is sited near the .67 QTH. This repeater operates on 51.780 with an input on 51.280. Photos to come on this one!

Breakfast Anyone?

If you're an Early Bird on Saturday mornings, join us for breakfast at the Eat-'n-Park® in New Stanton, PA [Jct I-70 & I-76 (PA Tpk.). The gang usually arrives between 0700 and 0730. You can be on your way again by 0830 or 0900.

Talk-in on 146.67, or just tell the hostess to seat you with "that ham radio gang!"


Add Me!

Like any construction project...expect some QRM and delays as we work to improve our "image," hi, hi.
