"Rescues"
Over the years, people have given me or I have found for cheap on eBay a good number of radios needing some TLC. Some were functionally broken, while others just had cosmetic damage. I restore them to a respectable state. They are used for various public service events and also as spares.

K1IW 447.875 Repeater
447.875 is located in Marlborough MA. Site elevation is 590ft AMSL.

A PL tone of 79.7 is required to access the repeater in analog mode. The repeater also transmits this tone when in analog mode.

The repeater is a Yaesu System Fusion repeater operating in dual mode, connected to a Link Systems RLC-4 controller and a remote base that can access 32 repeaters across New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island. The repeater transmitter feeds a Henry Radio power amplifier operating at the legal limit of 50w.

Digital mode is disabled when the remote base is active.

Currently, all DTMFs must be entered with analog FM (this should be fixed by summer, 2017). Any linking command received while in digital mode will automatically pop the repeater back into analog mode, and then establish the link requested.

One more note: The repeater location is high enough that the remote base may hear other repeaters on the same frequency. The remote base TX PL is set to the one shown in the table, which corresponds to the repeater listed first. Other repeaters that might be heard are in the rightmost column.
