REPEATERS

These areas covered extend from north of Proserpine, down to South of Rockhampton and out west to Clermont, Emerald and the Central Highlands. This is made up an extensive linked repeater system of several 2 Metre & 70cm Repeaters throughout the region. They are all linked and have IRLP & Echolink available. We have also been experimenting in Digital Modes and are progressively updating repeaters to suit.
