A brief history of 145.170...      The 145.170 repeater began it's service to East Tennessee Amateurs in Loudon county... originally a hamtronics repeater kit.  Tim purchased the machine and upgraded it to a GE Mastr Pro - then re-coordinated it to a location on top of Black Oak Ridge in North Knoxville in 1992 (at the old 147.075 site).  A few years later the machine was upgraded again to a Motorola "Micor" repeater, and relocated to it's present site in South Knoxville, atop View Park Hill.  It is now a Motorola MTR-2000 repeater. This is a local coverage repeater, serving the Knoxville area with 100-watts ERP.
