Our fund raising campaign was a great success! "Thank You!!!" to everyone that donated!  We now have a pair of 21st century State of the Art repeaters that will
serve Terrebonne, Lafourche, St. Mary and Assumption parish Amateur Radio operators and their communities for decades to come.
This would not be possible without you!!

Located just off of the Bayou Blue Bypass Road in Schriver La, between Houma and Thibodaux, this is the primary 2 meter repeater for northern Terrebonne &
northern Lafourche Parishes.
The antenna is a DB224 mounted at the 325 foot level.  The RF deck produces 25w RF.  Chances are if you can hear this repeater, you can get into it.  Give it a try.

Here's the manual for the ARC 210 controller installed on the 147.39/.99 repeater.

Theriot, Louisiana.
This repeater is located between Theriot and DuLarge, La south of Houma.
The repeater hardware utilizes the Yaesu Fusion system.  Modes include simple analog and most digitals.  For technical reasons, all inputs on this repeater are
mapped to the analog out port, no matter the input mode.  When some technical issues are resolved,  the repeater will be available in all modes
The antenna is a DB224 mounted on the northeast arm of the candelabra at 550 feet.  The coverage area is nothing short of phenomenal.  Lots of great signal
reports from Laplace, Praireville,  Mandeville, Slidell, New Orleans, all places that haven't heard this repeater in years!!!

147.330/.930 Mhz (+600 Khz R/T offset)
This repeater is currently off the air.
This repeater is looking for a home.  We're hoping to find one between Grand Isle, Fourchon, and Golden Meadow, an area which has some major Amateur Radio
repeater coverage issues. 
This area is a vital evacuation corridor in event of hurricanes making landfall anywhere on the Louisiana coast. There are also Amateur Radio coverage
considerations for VHF maritime mobile use. The importance of better coverage in this area can not be understated.  
With the return to service of the 147.300 repeater, some of the coverage issues in this area are a little better.  While we will take anything, as usual with VHF
frequencies, the higher the antenna the better. 
If you know someone who might be able to help with feedline, tower space in the Grand Isle, Fourchon, Golden Meadow area, please let us know.

444.500/449.500 Mhz (+5 Mhz R/T offset)
This repeater is currently off the air.

Other area repeaters will be listed after permissions have been obtained from the repeater owners.
