W9DUA Fusion Repeater On the Air With Improved Coverage

On Thursday, July 7, 2017, the club's fusion repeater moved to an antenna located on top of St. Johns Hospital.  The machine was previously located at the club's meeting space.  The new location has the antenna at approximately 180' in the air which provides some excellent coverage.
