Our two meter repeater operates on 146.73- (callsign W0OFK) and is located on a 400 Ft tower east of town. It is a Yaesu Fusion repeater capable of analog and digital (C4FM) voice.

It is connected to room 83156. An APRS Digipeater is on the air under the call of W0OFK-4. We are involved with multiple aspects of Amateur Radio, providing classes, sponsor test sessions, have operating events throughout the year, provide training to the Boy Scouts, and support the local community with communications as needed.
