The "64" antenna is at the 120 foot level on the tower. The transmitter has a 100 watt amplifier. There is a bank of batteries that can supply power to the repeater for a few days of normal operation in the event of a power outage. The "64" repeater also has a phone patch available for use by members.

The 145.170 repeater is also housed in the same building. The coverage of the "17" machine is not as great as the "64" machine, the antenna is much lower on the tower. On the plus side, the "17" machine has a full time 10 Meter link. The 10 Meter receive antenna is at this site. The 10 Meter transmitter and  antenna are at a remote location, in Palmyra, Pa. at this time. The frequencies for the 10 Meter side of the repeater are............
