Gary has reason to be "Happy",

He pulled off the near impossible.   We were told a couple years ago, this couldn't be done.

This is huge, bigger than most know, as it'll now prevent anyone in our range from taking or using conflicting freqs, and it'll be published in guide books,

Gary is truly a hero.

Congratulations.

Now if only I / we can reach it directly from the Ridge.

N6BLU, you deserve a special gold star in life.  That cert means the repeater will help a lot of people over the upcoming decades.  Every emergency call that gets helped by our repeater will have your name on it.  K6KLK, you get loads of credit here too for having the insight to bring this whole ham thing over from the Rubicon and to keep pushing it until we git it.

BRAVO!!!!! To all those that made this happen, THANK YOU!

I have used it a couple of times from the Phillbrook area. It works awesome even using a 5w handheld with stock rubber ducky antenna!!
