Our Repeaters

Buffalo Repeater Fundraising Goal Reached

All of us at Southwest Missouri Regional Skywarn are humbled to announce that we have reached our goal of raising the $5,000 needed to move and rebuild the 147.180 MHz. Buffalo, Missouri repeater! … (click here to read more)

In the near future, we will begin another funding campaign to raise the funds needed for the forthcoming Macomb, Missouri Repeater.  Details about this new repeater will be posted on this site soon.  Please join the others who have invested in our mission to protect lives in property throughout Southwest Missouri and donate today.

The costs for equipment and professional services for all of these repeaters is not covered by the National Weather Service, N.O.A.A., or any other government entity.  Southwest Missouri Regional Skywarn is wholly reliant upon its members and volunteers for such funding.  Please, donate today to help us keep the Buffalo Repeater on the air following the city’s water tower replacement.  Click here or on the “Donate” buttons found on this Website to make your pledge of support today.  Thank you!
