Antenna is ~30ft near Barlow and South Airport in Traverse City, MI and covers downtown fairly well on mobile or HT on high power.
The repeater will be moving to a tower just South and West of downtown when the snow is gone. Power will be increased, HAAT will increase, and performance should be much better.
FYI the repeater callsign is currently KC8PBX as it is operated by the Houghton County Communications Authority which has a club callsign.
