"This is the widest area coverage repeater in the northern Willamette Valley."
Posted by: KD6KPC (member) on 2006-10-18.

One of the most active repeater sites in the Portland area. Good coverage and used by truckers.

"Poorly maintained system..."
Posted by: KY0TE on 2007-06-26.

The 'intermod' issue is no doubt indigenous to the site, but the 'interference' from users of other repeater systems on the same frequency could be easily removed by use of an input tone.

"Check It Out Again"
Posted by: W6ABM on 2008-09-15.

Those with complaints about this machine may wish to check it out again. When you have a machine at altitude on a site that is owned and controlled by both a commercial and governmental entity...you can't always access timely.

"Great repeater!"
Posted by: KC7CJO (member) on 2012-08-30.

Coverage area larger than map shows! Intermod issues can NOT be solved by toning! Too many other repeaters on site and only 500 yards from another busy site. Repeater is VERY well maintained!

"Workable from WA"
Posted by: KF7PCL on 2012-10-28.

Marginally workable from Ocean Shores, WA if the band is good shape.

No longer wide coverage due to site problems and antenna being lowered on the tower temporarily.

Repeater is off the air for unknown reasons at this time for equipment failure. As soon as the trustee's can get on site it will be returned to active status. The owners have been contacted.
