K4ETN/R West     Greeneville, TN

Repeater Output-444.750    Input- 449.750  Tone 192.8 Hz

In October 2017 this repeater will migrate to System Fusion in DIGITAL MODE ONLY!

Please note that it is not my intention to exclude analog usage, but there is very little activity on this repeater at this time.

Currently there are no plans to link the 444.750 repeater with any others, or provide Wires-X features. I apologize for any inconvenience to analog users.
