Upgrade to WA2NAN North Country repeater

The WA2NAN 147.135 repeater in Northern NY (Oswegathchie NY) has been upgraded. This repeater is a wide area coverage repeater covering the northern Adirondacks with excellent coverage across the Route 3 corridor. This repeater also carries the famous Sully's International Rooster Roster net each day. 

Note from WA2NAN; Kerry on the Rooster Roster Facebook page:

The Oswegatchie Valley Amateur Radio Club (OVARC) who has sponsored the Morning Rooster Roster and other nets for several years,147.135+ with a 151.4 pl.) has recently upgraded to a new repeater. After years of using an old GE 1960's vintage repeater (that turned into fix or repair daily ) lately, we now have a new Bridgecom BCR-50v. This purchase leaves us on the hook for $1500.00. We are asking all who would like to contribute to this project with a donation to please visit our website ( and you will find down the left side of the page our secretary/treasure KB2HPR along with his email and address. Our wide area repeater is a mainstay in Emergencies as it covers four counties in NNY and well into Canada. Thank you in advance...…..73's......Kerry, WA2NAN
