The 147.000 is the flagship repeater of the SFFMA. It's located 1400' up on the WTVJ, NBC6 tower. The RX antenna is at about 1600', the TX is at 1500'. This makes it the highest Amateur Radio Repeater in South Florida. The transmitter power output is 50 watts. There is no duplexer since there are two antennas separated by 100'.
Like all SFFMA repeaters, it is open to all licensed Amateurs.
The repeater is optionally linked to the WT4X 442.350 repeater. When you hear a drip sound, that was a transmission from the 442.350 repeater.
Click on the buttons at the top of the page to see pictures of the highest repeater in South Florida, the 147.000 Repeater. The dates refer to the date of a trip we made up the tower to work on it. Not all trips were documented with pictures.
This critical repeater site has been donated to the SFFMA by WTVJ, NBC6 in Miami.
We thank them for their support of Emergency Communication and Amateur Radio in South Florida.
