I am 47 airline miles from the tower and can easily get into the repeater from my mobile (both the TH-7800 dual band and my CS800 DMR in analog mode).

I've also manage to get in from my 4 watt XPR7550 DMR in analog mode, albeit not full quieting.

 

Prior to the relocation, I could barely get into it from my radio room using a hi-gain rooftop mounted antenna. From what the owner told me the other day, with the ground elevation taken into consideration, the "height" now is equivalent to around 560'. The repeater is a venerable Micor that's been around for a very long time. Motorola equipment from that era doesn't want to die...  B)

 

That's fantastic! Thanks for the update.  Sounds like you may have a lot more people using the repeaters in your area than we have in our area.
