Hi...I'm looking for active 2M/70cm repeaters in and around Munising Michigan. I'm going to be vacationing there in July. Thanks in advance.

It shows only one for Munising at Amateur and GMRS radio repeaters Local to MUNISING, Michigan

Although you can put in different surrounding towns see what shows up. Course this is a list and doesn't show if active or not.

Looks like Alger County has an Amateur Radio club and their own 2 meter repeater. The site hasn't been updated in what looks like almost 2 years, but they are probably still active.

Alger Amateur Radio Club

They list a few near by repeaters too. I would show up to one of the meetings on Monday at 7pm to get to know some of the local hams.

EDIT: oops just finished re-reading and saw you are going to be vacationing there. Looks like they have a phone number on the front page. Give them a call then. Enjoy your vacation!

Thanks for the replies. I'll probably do a band search with the scanner on the way up there too.

If you're going up through Michigan to get there, Grand Rapids has a linked repeater system that will pretty much take you from the Indiana line to the Mackinac Bridge. It's call sign is W8HVG. I know there are links in Kalamazoo, Cadillac, Traverse City, & Vanderbilt, as well as several others.

I'm actually going up through Wisconsin, which I already had the frequencies loaded for. I also emailed the Alger Amateur Radio Club and got the frequencies for the linked system for the UP. I'll also be monitoring/calling on 520 on the way up, and also when I'm headed back.

Here's another with Wisconsin in it displayed in a map format so it's easy to see where they are in relation to your drive.
