University Mountain Repeaters and Site

The University Mountain repeater is located at our site about 3 miles East of Missoula, Montana along the South side of Interstate 90. The site sits at an elevation of 5,366 feet and has an 88 foot tower. The UHF repeater consists of a Motorola SLR5700 operating at 50 watts. It is operating into two Celwave PD-1151 antennas at the top of the tower and fed with 7/8s heliax. These antennas sit at about 95 feet. In 2017, the repeater is now using a Digital DMR system. More information about our Digital repeaters can be found on the DMR Montana Website. The repeater covers the Missoula Valley and surrounding areas, along with providing Interstate 90 coverage from Tarkio to Drummond, and North and South from Hamilton to the Flathead Valley. The repeater is linked into the DMR system linked to the Brandmeister Worldwide Digital Network. The Digital network is connected via a Cisco Wireless Router through the Verizon Cellular Network. Additionally we operate an APRS Digi-peater ("UNVMTN") at this site and it is connected to a Telewave 2.5Dbd gain antenna at the top of the tower.
