The Manahawkin Repeater is a GE commercial grade repeater.



The "Manahawkin Repeater" is the primary 2 meter communications repeater in Southern Ocean County. It is affiliated with RACES and ARES. It has been operated by "The 835 User Group" since it's beginnings back in 1975. The 835 User Group works in a cooperative agreement with State and County Emergency Management.

The "User Group" is comprised of 8 board members who manage the operation of the repeater.

John Bodine WU2E
Tom Kutylowski N2CZ
Steve McGarry W2USF
Bill Clanton N2EID
Bob Wick N2HM
Paul Dalton, KA2ENC
Bob Schenck N2OO

The User Group is also comprised of "
supporting members" who contribute to the operation and maintenance of the repeater. Suggested "contributions/dues" are $25.00 per year and includes ALL licensed "hams" living in your household.
These "contributions/dues" are collected on an "as needed" basis, and in "one time" collections. We do not make collections more often than once a year. Often times in the past, we ran as long as 2 years or more before needing to make a new collection. But, we only guarantee one year minimum. People who join during an already running dues period will be prorated upon renewal in the next dues period. "
Supporting members" are not voting members. The "organization" of this group is made this way simply to "pay the bills" and operate the Manahawkin Repeater in the simplest way possible.
