Marana Repeater Project Complete

Marana Repeater Project Complete

The Marana Repeater Project is complete.  The permanent antenna has been installed and the repeater is linked to the rest of the system.  A big thanks goes out to the OVARC Repeater Team.  The new repeater is on 447.525 (-) PL156.7.  The repeater team requests that for the near term repeater users announce which repeater they are using so that audio levels can be checked.
