Just heard a radio tech asking for a radio check on the Pere Marquette site. This was the Starcom system. He was calling Collinsville D11. RR doesn't show that location. I this a new one? Radio is a 536HP. Thanks for any info.Bob N9RMA

You by any chance catch the control channel?

Pere Marquette is about half way between Kampsville and Brussels in Calhoun County.
Wouldn't surprise me there adding a tower.
Kind of hilly out that way.

StarCom signals are pretty darn thin around the park and Grafton area. Those huge bluffs really limit signals down in town and along the river road. Keep us posted. That would be a great addition to the sites around the St Louis Metro area.

I was just thinking. Maybe StarCom should put a tower on the MO side of the river to fill those low lying areas below the bluffs near Grafton. MOSWIN already has a site or two in IL to help fill in coverage in MO. It might actually work.
