Check back here from time to time. This repeater is still growing. The coverage has
expanded considerably since it's start. The RC210 allows for both the IRLP node and
weather radio to operate at the same time. Weather alerts for the repeater coverage
area are now transmitted using SAME technology. There are still some more projects
planned to make this repeater even better.
