I'm trying to reprogram my F121S radio and I'm looking for the most active 2 meter amateur radio repeaters in the Fort Worth area. I am located in West Fort Worth, but I'm mobile all over Fort Worth on a daily basis. I only have a few openings (about 8) in my radio, so I am only looking for the very active repeaters.

Thanks,
Jared K.

If you don't already have them, program in the 3 K5FTW repeaters-- 145.110, 146.940 and 146.760 all PL 110.9. The .94 is Tarrant RACES's Skywarn repeater with the 146.760 as backup.

I'd probably also program the Arlington ARC system 147.140+ the 145.330- repeater as well as the W5SJZ repeater 147.280+ at Lockheed, all PL 110.9.

Might as well toss in the Azle system at 147.160+ PL 110.9 and the Weatherford repeater at 147.040+ PL 110.9 (which is actually in Weatherford but has fantastic coverage)

That should pretty much cover things in Tarrant County on the 2m side

The Kilocycle club has one on 146.840, negative offset and 110.9 tone. 147.570 is a popular simplex frequency in the area.

Do you still have this radio and if so how do you like it?

I don't have the radio anymore, but for the time that I used it I really liked it. I had it connected to a mag mount antenna and got great reception. I never had any problems with this radio. The only downside is that there is no alpha-tagging and there are only 8 channels. Other that that, I really liked the radio.
