What are your plans for a site? What help do you need? There are plenty of repeaters around the area now that no one uses. Then you have that LEARN system that nobody uses at all, what a waist it is.

Put up a repeater and make it open. Post it on MYGMRS.com or shrare it here and people will eventually find it and use it. Have fun !

Not familiar with the LEARN system, Skypilot. What is it?

To the OP. There used to be a nice repeater right in Center City Phila
that had some timeout issues but it had some great coverage. It
just went down about 4 weeks ago and everybody in the Phila, S. Jersey
and outskirts of Phila is going crazy trying to find a good repeater.
We found one on 700 but it is on the Roxboro towers about 150 feet up.
If you could cover the S. Philly, S. Jersey area, i'm sure you would get some
users

The LEARN system(Law Enforcement ? Radio Network) is on 575, 675 and 700. There are multiple repeaters on the same frequencies with many PL tones to access. There is an open machine in Chester PA on 700 that is not part of LEARN. LEARN covers the Philly metro area and a large portion of south Jersey. I think the guy running it wants $200-300 a year to use the system. Nothing but crickets on there.

The Chester Repeater you mentioned (700) might be the one
we all switched to when we lost the Center City repeater.
i was told it was on the Roxboro towers, but I was also told
another repeater I was talking on was in Ridley PA and it
turns out that it is actually in Yeadon PA

The 700 repeater in Chester run by a local Ham that has a decent size tower at his house. I can work the repeater from Logan Twp NJ up to the Belmawr area then I loose it. I forget the tone on it, I think it has multiple including 141.3.

Theres a repeater in on 725 with a tone of 371 its a open machine but its hit or miss the further east you get towards the jersey boarder. I wish grms would make a come back like it was within the last 20 years. their use to be a ton of open gmrs systems. it seems like the eastern and northern jersey up to ny is very active with many active machines. but i would like to see a high profile open repeater come into the area or if we could get a group of active guys that would put something together id be open to that, i know of a few that have the knowlege and the equipment that are willing to help its more of a site with a tower or a nice tall building that wouldnt charge major rent maybe a donation site. lets bring back gmrs to the area and make it big again. anyone thats intrested or wants to help post or send me a message thanks.

It would be great if the University Of Penn did a GMRS
repeater like they do with the N2KZ linked system on 442.
That would get a lot of action, I'm sure

Where is this repeater? I tried it tonight and I get nothing at all.
Using 462.725 + 5.0000 (rx=462.725 tx=467.725) and DTCS 371.
Even tried DTCS with RR (reverse, reverse). I am just over the
WW Bridge on the Jersey side
