New Maui Repeaters Online and 147.02 Update
Thanks to an update from KH6H, I am happy to report that we have two new repeaters on line serving Maui County. The 147.08 repeater is reported to be located at the old QTH of the 147.02 State Races repeater on Haleakala. Both are MCDA (MEMA) repeaters:
Haleakala 147.08 + tone 107.2
Kahaukuloa 442.400 + tone 136.5
Both repeaters have been installed. 147.08 may still have desense problems and may be off the air. The Kahaukuloa repeater is accessible from Central, East and Upcountry Maui.
There is also a Winlink gateway station in Waiehu, WH6AV-11 on 145.07. At last check it was off the air due to a transmitter problem. This station is owned by WH6AV and is not part of the MEMA system.
KH6H also reports that the 147.02 Maui County State RACES repeater that was located on Haleakala is still off island undergoing repairs. It is scheduled to be reinstalled in its old location by the end of the first quarter of this year.
