Sutherland Repeater.

With the gratefull assistance of HAMNET Western Cape we have recenttly commisioned a 2m Repeater in Sutherland. RX 145.600 Tone 88.5

Also would not be possible without the gracious assistance of ATNS South Africa (Air Traffic Navigation Systems) for hosting the repeater.

It is situated at the ATNS radar site approximately 1850 metres above sea level.

We now have 2m coverage over a very extensive area that was not previosly covered by Cellular or any other communication method.This has greatly enhanced the safety of travellers in the area. (licensed amateurs only)

It will also be of great importance should disaster communications in the area be required

We now have an APRS Igate oprerating at 1875 m asl - ZS3OBS-10. 32°22.59' S 20°48.65' E 

A further enhancement to our commitment to safetey and disaster management

Thanks for the VISIT.

Catch you on the air sometime.
