The 52.68 repeater, located in Newbury Ohio, is a high-power and high-profile system that covers the majority of Northeast and North Central Ohio, as well as extreme Northwest Pennsylvania. It is a voted system with approximately 20 remote inputs scattered around its coverage area.
It is full-time linked to the 444.975 UHF repeater at the same location which covers Geauga and a few surrounding counties. UHF or “U2” uses an input frequency of 449.975 and has a DPL/DCS of 251 – but make sure to listen in carrier squelch.
The repeater is open – anyone is welcome to use it, but Cleveland Skywarn takes priority. We do ask that you keep the content clean and interesting!
