Tower Info


The original KB4TOH (now KX4NC) repeater went on the air July 4th weekend, 1989, on a frequency of 145.110 MHz. The original repeater was a GE Mastr Pro, later upgraded to ICOM in August 1991. After years of upgrades and work we finally moved to our new location on the tower. On November 1, 2008, the repeater call was changed from KB4TOH to KX4NC to reflect CERA's ownership of the repeater system. The repeater trustee is Mike Cohoon, KB4TOH.

The VHF and UHF repeaters and an APRS node are located at 1,200 feet in a weatherproof enclosure on a platform on the WUND tower in Columbia.

Repeater coordinates are Lat 35°53'59" Lon -76°20'52"
