Elkhart, Indiana 70cm UHF Repeater 444.050+ CC1 / PL tone 141.3

K9DEW 444.050 MHz DMR Digital Repeater has excellent range for UHF Digital. These Mototrbo repeaters are bringing some of the newest and advanced digital quality to Amateur Radio. The 444.050 MHz has an Indiana StateWide talk group that allows amateurs to talk across Indiana to the other DMR tied repeaters. Elkhart and Mishawaka DMR repeaters carry the Reg. 5 Auxcom Comm Homeland Security / FEMA talk group. 

K9DEW's Mishawaka, Elkhart local talk group are linked together with N9GPY Plymouth, Culver, and NT9M LaGrange DMR repeaters.


Elkhart, Indiana 2 Meter VHF Repeater 145.430- PL tone 141.3

The 145.430 with alternate 146.895 K9TSM, repeater supports, SkyWarn (Quad 4 and local), ARES-RACES, Elkhart Red Cross and Elkhart County Emergency Management.

The 5.43 has been a greater part of Elkhart for many years, thanks to all the service ECRA and its members had provided. It will remain a large part of amateur radio in our community thanks to the ECRA and the Moore family at WFRN for allowing K9DEW to continue servicing the area.  

It has Roll Call and announcements for SkyWarn, ARES-RACES and the Red Cross. This net is on Monday nights at 7:30 p.m.


Elkhart, Indiana 220 VHF Repeater 224.900- PL tone 131.8

The 220 repeater shares a very similar history as the 5.43 repeater. It also covers a wide area and provides benefits located between 2M and 70CM spectrum. Many would agree 220 is unique and underestimated for its characteristics. Hopefully, in the future, this repeater will provide very interesting functions allowing repeater linking and VoIP.
