Repeater Cost

2024-03-22 by Robert Bower W9RWB

I am taking off my Board Member hat for a minute and want to talk to you ham to ham.

I just sent a donation to a ham because I use his repeater. I would also urge any of you who use someone's repeater to do the same.

The cost of a repeater and it upkeep is not an inexpensive venture. There are the upfront cost of equipment, computers, coax, and antennas but there are also ongoing costs like electricity, Internet access, and repair.

So if you share in the benefit of a repeater please consider sharing in the cost of the same repeater.
