New 146.980 Link
I'd like to personally thank Chris K7TVL for linking the 6.98 repeater, which is located on the KGW Tower in Portland, up to the 5.13 repeater system. Where I live in Salem I have a rather large hill to the south of my home QTH and listening to/hitting the 513 is rather annoying with all the phase distortion that occurs depending on weather conditions.

With this new link, participating in the 513 activities is far more easier and enjoyable than ever before, for not only myself of course, but I'm sure for others who may reside in the Greater Portland area.

I have noticed that the 6.98 doesn't seem to have that strong of a signal compared to other repeaters in the same area. In fact, when I'm mobile in Salem, the 5.13 has a much stronger signal than the 6.98. I don't know the real reason for this but maybe there is a legitamite reason for it.

Oh well, I'm just happy for the better access the to the 5.13 system. Thanks Chris.
