Our Repeaters

Lake of the Ozarks RepeaterWe are excited to announce that Southwest Missouri Regional Skywarn now has full time coverage into the Lake of the Ozarks area! The KA0RFO repeater transmits on a frequency of 146.955 MHz. with a standard minus ( – ) offset and a PL tone of 192.8 Hertz from a tower 500 feet above Laurie, Missouri. This repeater serves the entire Lake of the Ozarks region with coverage as far north as Jefferson City, Missouri.

We thank KRMS Radio, Dennis, KA0RFO, The Camden County Emergency Management Agency (CCEMA) under the direction of Ron Gentry, and Ernie, W0LTC, for their help in making this link happen so that Southwest Missouri Regional Skywarn can use this very wide-area-coverage repeater system to serve the communities throughout the northern and northeastern portions of our County Warning Area. We Springfield Missouri Boy Scouts Repeaterwelcome all licensed amateurs within the coverage area of the KA0RFO repeater to participate in all of our weekly nets and to benefit from this amazing signal coverage.

Additionally, the Boy Scouts of America Post 30 KC0DBU Repeater, which serves the greater Springfield, Missouri metropolitan area from atop Cox South Hospital, is now linked full time into Southwest Missouri Regional Skywarn. The KC0DBU Repeater transmits on a fr
equency of 145.33 MHz. with a standard minus (-) offset and a PL tone of 156.7 Hertz from atop Cox South Hospital in Springfield, Missouri.

This repeater will serve as an inner-city relay for handheld and other low power transceivers throughout the greater Springfield metropolitan area. We thank The Boy Scouts of America Post 30 and Frank, KA0JIQ, the trustee, for allowing us to use their repeater. We encourage and welcome all Boy Scouts who are hams to our weekly Youth Nets as well as our Tuesday evening Training Nets.
