The VHF repeater is co-located at the Marshall County Highway repeater site on their tower.  It is a Motorola MSR2000 that has served us well for the past several years.

 

The UHF repeater is located at the Fairdealing-Olive Fire Station.  It is a Uniden desk top repeater we acquired from EBay and setup for operation by Bill Call - KJ4W.  It too has served us well since it was put into operation.  It survived the move from the old station and setup at the new station that featured an 80 foot tower and change over from coax to hard line that greatly improved its coverage.  Images below:  (left) 80' stick with both Fire Antenna and 440 Ham antennas.  Middle upper is a close up of the top of the tower. As seen here the antenna on the right is the 440.  Middle lower is just a small thank you from both the Fairdealing Olive Fire Department and the Marshall County Amateur Radio Association for Darnell Steel's gracious donation.  Far right is the cabinet that houses the repeater and the Echolink computer. 

 

We will add pictures when they become available.
