Our club recently absorbed the W9HOI club of Peoria, and in that process we picked up two new repeaters located near Kickapoo, IL. The new repeaters are at 146.76 and 444.200, both utilizing a PL tone of 103.5. For the time being they will remain stand alone repeaters, but may at some future point be linked to our Roanoke site to extend club coverage on the west side of our county and into Peoria. Add them to your database and scan list! Let's make these machines active, and welcome our new members from the Heart of Illinois Repeater Club!
