Micor Moto peater but no links on the VHF---Now the UHF (u can see the 8  element antenna) is super linked to 5 independent repeaters all along northern Illinois and S. Wisco and it ours the hub! They did have a website for it but the server got stolen from what I heard so the link is dead now...if it comes up I'll post it for ya all to see!  Quite the system from Lake Michigan to the Mississippi all along the state line!!!

I see there is a one page now for "COWFAR" here is the link---

Very Nice---I see d-link is alive and well in Cali--A few here in Chi-Town are going but nothing like your sit---I keep tabs on them with my sub to the yahoo midwest d-link group e-mails.

BTW I did see the Henry Amp!!!

Upon closer review I see that it is one new d-link repeater---the 15 peater system is analog and very nice at that! Must be nice to have the hills to help out for grate coverage---no wonder vhf and uhf is so popular in Cali.

::Indeed; but while the mountains add a lot of height to the systems, they don't make installations or service any easier.  Most of the sites are difficult and limited access and are miles (and miles and miles) off major roads.  The success of these systems rests with the group taking responsibility for ownership and upkeep.
