Correction; 1 location, 285 Manning Drive and then 10km radius around that point.
Estes Drive location is just a control point.

Two things I find more interesting:

1) Licensed for 2 Watts output power, 4.3Watts ERP, 11K0F3D emissions,
2) Contact info on the FCC license page is Carolina Microwave Associates, Cowpens, SC.


What the heck? Who is that, and how are they traveling so far afield to put in a single 2 watt repeater?

My thoughts if its low VHF UHF its for building penetration.

Guess not if its UHF, thought itll still do better than 800. Its probably more for the campus fire marshals, as I dont think the university has a real fire department, they use city of Chapel Hills FD. I know NCSU has just fire marshals for comparison as well (they respond to everything but dont do anything); so probably setup the same way.

Subjective at best.
