Cambridge Node Network – Texas and Arkansas

On August 3, 2018 the 442.00 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. Stay tuned for our *relaunch* at Summerfest 2019 with a brand new, interference free frequency.

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 midway between the majestic dome of the State Capital and the sometimes glowing orange UT Tower.

On Allstar you can connect to us via these nodes, please feel free to connect as we are an open node system and welcome the injection of new blood.
