K8DAA 2 meter repeater audio now online…

You can now listen to the Holland ARC’s 147.060 repeater audio on the Internet.

The direct link is:

This is found on the Radio Reference page for Ottawa County:

http://www.broadcastify.com/listen/ctid/1296

Keep in mind that with steaming audio there is a 25-30 second delay in the audio.

This feed makes it handy for many of us to monitor the repeater from our work environment, especially during severe weather.

There is no cost to you or the club for this service.
