Status Key:   ON LINE = Working fine  PROBLEM = Known issue/Repair sked  OFF LINE = Off the air for repair

Squalicum note: The 2m repeater on Squalicum is on the same frequency as Constitution (different tone). It is shut down now but can be turned on for emergency operation in the event of a failure of the Constitution 2m machine.

The repeater group was founded in 1974 by W7ISX Tony (sk).  W7UMH Jim , W7LXP Danny (sk) ,W7YEQ Bill (sk). and WA7BAY ( W7NP ) Mike.  We are a semi-autonomous subsidiary group within the Mt. Baker Amateur Radio Club with our own elected officers and bylaws.  Our first machine was put on the air in late 1974 on Mt Constitution on Orcas Island, and in 1978 a repeater was added at King Mt. just north of Bellingham. 

The repeater group now has three repeaters on two meters and three on 70 cm.  The wide area repeaters at the Mt. Constitution site are on 146.740 Mhz and 444.050 Mhz.  These machines can be cross-linked if needed by the control operator.

The group has two local coverage machines at the King Mt. site on 147.160 Mhz and 443.650 Mhz which provide  Whatcom county area coverage and ARES and RACES operations.  The 147.160 Mhz repeater has a link to the IRLP worldwide network (node 3276).  The 443.650 Mhz  repeater is linked to the W7UMH 53.090 Mhz six meter repeater on Lyman Hill near Sedro Woolley.

In Oct. 2002 a wide area coverage repeater on 443.750 Mhz was added to our system on Lookout Mountain south of Bellingham near North Lake Samish.  Then in Oct. 2003 a second 146.740 Mhz repeater was added to Lookout Mountain site.  This repeater uses a PL tone of 127.3 Hz while the Orcas Island repeater uses a 103.5 Hz tone; both repeaters share the same frequency and the user selects the machine by the PL tone used.  These machines can be distinguished by the courtesy  tone:  the Mt. Constitution repeater sends the CW letter “T” or a dah, and the Lookout  repeater sends the letter “K” or dah-dit-dah.

If you would like to help support the repeater group, you can do so with a YEARLY donation of $25.00.   This helps with maintenance, upkeep and procurement of new equipment at the Mt. Constitution / Lookout Mountain repeaters, along with support for the King Mountain and Lyman Hill sites.
