Santa came early this year 

Well the North Hills Amateur Radio Clubs' flag ship repeater on 147.090 has been returned to service much sooner than expected.

The repeater is located above Pittsburgh's North Side on the WPXI channel 11 television tower and covers the city and surrounding Allegheny County area. The machine is the official ARES repeater for the county. It transmits a continuous CTCSS tone of 88.5 and if need be can be switched to 88.5 on the receiver. Normally though the machine runs with carrier squelch on the input.

If you are in the Pittsburgh area please feel free to use the machine and say hello to the hams in the area.
