Mishawaka, Indiana 2 Meter VHF Repeater 147.330+ PL tone 131.8 @ 615'
The 33 repeater is on the 1000 ft. broadcast tower side mounted at 615' south side of Mishawaka. This accomplishment has allowed us to have the tallest 2 Meter site in the entire area. The 147.33 has been around for many years and is well-known locally. With the new ability to make it available to a much higher profile, this repeater has grown to a 25+ mile portable, 60+ mile mobile, and 85+ mile base to the repeater range.
The 147.33 repeater does have the ability to provide an Echo Test.
DMTF 04 (wait for the repeater to respond via CW along with a courtesy tone) then speak. Example: "K9DEW echo test", then unkey. The repeater will respond back with your created message.
This is great for range testing, and audio testing, and maybe you like to hear yourself talk. Either way, enjoy, and please do not abuse this feature.
