VK5RSE:Two Metre Repeater

With 146.800MHz output and 146.200MHz input the general purpose repeater was installed 3rd September 2005 on Mt Graham, 11km NE of Millicent.
This repeater is temporarily connected to the south-east two metre network. Up until January 2021, it was linked to VK5ROH 70cm repeater as listed which in turn connects to IRLP node 6875 at VK5WSR in the Mount Gambier clubrooms.

On Thursday 27 October 2022 the Mt Graham Repeater was converted to a central position between Mt Benson and The Bluff. The repeater has been completely rebuilt by Brian VK5VI and now has two links feeding The Bluff and Mt Benson between Kingston and Robe.
