The Motorola repeater is down and we are using the Icom backup repeater. If you have tone squelch on for the Motorola, you will need to turn it off to be able to hear this repeater. What I did is just create another memory on my 2m rigs for 145.39 with no tones. - K9MI

Madison County ARC

Welcome to the Madison County Amateur Radio Club of Central Indiana web site. We are a club of around 40 members who enjoy a variety of interest in the field of Amateur Radio. We own and operate the W9VCF repeater on 145.39 Mhz which is on a PL tone 151.4 hz to keep out interference. The repeater is located on top of Community hospital in north Anderson and the tip of the antenna is probably around 145 feet. The main repeater is a Motorola MSR 2000 running 80 watts. Backup repeater is an Icom IC-RP 1510 with an output around 20 watts. The repeater system uses a DB 224 antenna and Wacom 641 duplexers.
