Repeater Project

In the fall of 2007 LCSARO applied for and received a Title III grant to upgrade the existing repeater infrastructure in Lane County, OR. Over the summer and fall of 2008, the 10 repeaters that support emergency communications in the county were replaced with new standardized equipment purchased under the grant. LCSARO maintains a memorandum of understanding between the repeater owners/operators, provides support, and maintains insurance covering the equipment. In addition to the 10 repeaters upgraded, LCSARO built a portable setup that can be deployed to areas of marginal coverage or that can be used to replace one of the 10 in the event of a failure.
