The 2m and 70cm repeaters are manufactured by Kenwood; the 2m equipment was installed at the end of July 2003, while the 70cm equipment was purchased in 1998.
151 and West Over Hills Yaesu System Fusion Repeaters (C4FM)

The 70 cm repeaters are manufactured by Yaesu and operates on Automatic Mode Select (AMS / Mixed Mode) that are capable to operate in either FM or Digital modes. The equipment was donated by club members in March of 2015. Future Plans will convert this system to a Digital only mode by the end of the 4th quarter of 2015.
All three repeater frequency pairs are fully coordinated in the club’s name. Anyone with a technician class or higher HAM license can use any of these machines and adhere to AARO Repeater Rules posted below.
It’s only through our fund-raising activities and membership support that our Board of Directors have the resources necessary to upgrade our repeater systems. It’s thanks to you that AARO’s club treasury is capable of permitting us to put your dollars back to work for you in this way to support this great avocation.
