The 145.270 club repeater is a Kenwood TKR750, located on Pine Log Mountain in Waleska, GA.
A few rules of operation if I may:
1. Have FUN !!
It is available for general ham use, so you may enjoy our hobby.
2. Be Social.
Please no excessive kerchunking. If you’re going take the time to key up, go ahead and throw your call out there. Don’t be shy. The whole purpose of the repeater is for communication.
3. Follow Part97 rules.
By doing so, we can be sure this machine is always available for use.
4. Watch your transmit time.
Please don’t force the time out timer. By watching your transmit time and allowing pauses between transmissions, you can allow anyone with an emergency to break in.
5. Please give priority to emergency traffic and scheduled nets.
Net control stations do not like to interrupt an ongoing QSO for a scheduled net. It makes them feel awkward. When a net is about to occur, stick around for the net. We’d love for you to check in with us. You can continue your QSO when the net is done.
6. IF by chance there is a problem with the sister repeater 147.015 on a Thursday night, the North GA Disaster Relief Team net may want to QSY to this repeater without notice. In that case, please allow them, combine the two nets, and join in.
7. If you happen to notice any problems with the repeater, please let the owner know at his callsign @ arrl.net.

Many many thanks to N4GIS and those who participated in the re-installation of the antenna. Especially “Fearless Frank” K4SJR for going to ‘medium heights’ to tackle the hardware.
