Kellerberrin 2m/APRS

Kellerberrin repeater site has been secured thanks to the hard work of Peter VK6FUN. The Kellerberin shire council have granted us permission to install and operate a 2m voice repeater and APRS node up their tower at the top of the hill. A recent site survey indicated it is a prime site in providing coverage over the great eastern highway between Perth and Kalgoorlie. It’s expected the site to be fully operational early 2011
