The 145.47 History page!
Recently, I found several photos of the original 145.47.
I built my very first repeater out of surplus GE "Progress Line" transmitter
and receiver strips, and added a control/repeater inerface that was home
built on a GE design by George Shaver, K4HXD. I placed the repeater on the
air from my parent's home on September 17, 1981. I had to call other hams
on the phone to get them to try the repeater on the air! From its humble
beginnings to now, I am so proud of my little dream coming to life, and thankful
to all of those who have used it over the years. Here's a trip
back in time to 1981, when 145.47 first went on the air! Sorry for
the focus on the camera...
