I have a 70-CM ham repeater that I am looking for a tower location for somewhere here in Livingston County; preferably close to Pinckney/Hamburg area. I host an open IRLP, EchoLink, and AllStar nodes plus NOAA weather alerting and various other messaging services that I would like to share within the community, especially since there are so few 70-CM repeaters here. Eventually I will convert this into a hybrid-MotoTRBO system support the same services on both analog and digital.
As far as the GMRS equipment, if I happen upon something simple and inexpensive, perhaps I'll consider hosting it if you're interested.
