The main site was upgraded with a RF Voting System for 147.270 Mhz Repeater and a new CAT-800 3-port linking repeater controller with voice services. A WX-250 National weather alert system donated by Robin Mather - WB9COW was also installed for improved RACES and ARES net activation's on the 2m repeater. 4 x RF Voting Receivers are now in service for Racine, Kenosha, Franksville and Union Grove Areas on the 147.270 KR9RK repeater. These additional 2m receivers allow lower power portables to be used in those areas. The Downtown Kenosha receiver provides more coverage to North Eastern Illinois. Union Grove enhances portable coverage for West Racine, Kenosha and Walworth county areas. Franksville receiver site is our Solar powered energy site that is now online. More receivers are in the plans for even more coverage into Oak Creek, Milwaukee areas as well as Gurnee, and Libertyville areas of Illinois. These new additional 2m sites are planned for 2020.
