Little White Mountain VHF Repeater

The Little White Mountain repeater is powered by solar, during winter there are times when the solar panels may not fully charge the batteries.

As the batteries are currently not getting fully charged, we ask members to use other club repeaters until further notice.

The repeater is still working but we are trying to reduce the unnecessary usage of power so it will remain available for emergency, search and rescue use.

A friendly reminder that kerchunking (transmitting a carrier without identifying, for the purposes of bringing up a repeater) is not only against the radio regulations, but is wasteful of the limited power available on solar powered repeaters.
