On August 3, 2018 the 442.000 repeater with an encode/decode tone set at 186.2 went live just in time for Summerfest, the annual Austin ham radio gathering. It is open for all licensed ham radio operators to use.
The repeater is in Austin’s “Museum District” on top of the Mid Century modern Cambridge Tower Condo at MLK and Lavaca Street near the AT&T Executive Education Center and the Bob Bullock Texas History Museum.
