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.  Both machines were updated to support Yaesu Fusion digital radio.

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.
