There are several repeaters in the area.  I have a couple that I'm responsible for 

147.165+ N5RN

  • A Yaesu DR-1X is on order for this repeater. As of November 21, 2015 it has not shipped.

443.700+ AF5AR (82.5 Tone)

  • As of November 13, 2015 at 09:22 AM Local,  the Maggiore repeater has been replaced with a Yaesu DR-1X.  The DR-1X is configured simply.  The tone is 82.5.  It has only locked up once so far requiring a reboot on November 16, 2015.  Plans are to put a Arcom controller on the repeater but that is a work in progress.

444.750+ AA5PW

Other in the White Hall / Pine Bluff area include:

146.700 (82.5 Tone) - K5DAK

  • As of  November 10, 2015 this repeater is now running a Yaesu DR-1X.  Tone is 82.5.

147.195 - N5KWH

  • Located at about the 300 foot level at White Bluff Steam Electric Station near Redfield, Arkansas.  Gives good coverage between both Pine Bluff and Little Rock.

442.175 - K5DAK

  • This repeater is now a Yaesu DR-1X with a tone 82.5. As of February 12, 2016 an UHF amplifier was installed so that that repeater output power could be reduced to low power to minimize problems with DR-1X.
