I've been running multiple 900mhz repeaters for years. It is a great band. Similar to 440mhz but with sharper nulls etc... The trick is finding clear input and output freqs...my machines are on odd splits because of that but since everyone is on commercial radios it doesnt matter.
Motorola GTX and MCS2000 are my preference.
KENWOOD TK-981 my other preference.
For at home base antennas comet makes a really well performing fiberglass vertical.
LMR-400 or better is damn near mandatory.
Thats my 2cents. FYI nyc based.
