The MMRA Southborough repeater was first located on "Mt. Nebo" in
Westborough. This is the small group towers & antennas located in
between the northbound and southbound sides of I-495, just North of the
route 9 intersection.|
The repeater was then moved to Maxtor facility in Shrewsbury, where it remained for many years. When this facility closed, it was moved to its current location on a 400' tower off of route 9 in Southborough.
The repeater antenna is located about 360' up the tower.
|The repeater consists of an Icom RP-2100 unit and an SCOM 7K controller. It also features short term battery backup capability.|
