The WB4GBI 145.43 repeater features
Yaesu "System Fusion" mode!
In 1982, the 145.43 frequency
was coordinated by SERA to WB4GBI. It operated at View Park Hill (the
present 145.17 site) until WB4GBI moved to North Carolina in 1987.
At that time, Tim returned the frequency to SERA for re-coordination.
It was then operated by several different owners, with the last one
being the Kerbela Amateur Radio Service (WB4YLC). In September of
2015, the Kerbela Amateur Service returned the 145.43 repeater to the
person who coordinated it originally...WB4GBI!
the present time, the repeater is located temporarily at the home of
WB4GBI. As soon as possible, the repeater will relocate to it's
permanent home...the transmitter site of WJBZ-FM. Many thanks to WJBZ
for their support of Amateur Radio!
The NEW WB4GBI 145.43 repeater features the Yaesu "System Fusion" digital mode! A NEW Yeasu DRX-2 Fusion repeater was installed on 12/27/2017.
