THE hangout repeater in Rapid city. Owned by the Black Hills Amateur Radio Club (BHARC), this repeater is excellently located to provide handheld level coverage to most of the city. Most of the day, their is usually somebody to talk to. This machine comes alive during the Sturgis rally week, with lots of out of state hams talking.
Despite its great city coverage, it does not extend far in any direction once you leave town. It will cover MOST of Pennington county with a mobile radio, but falls short after that. It is the repeater to use while visiting Mt.Rushmore.
