Repeaters

The RMRA Repeater System

The heart of the RMRA are repeaters.  We currently operate 11 repeaters in north central Wisconsin.  All of our repeaters are open to all amateur radio operators to use.  With a central location in Wausau on Rib Mountain, down south in Coloma, and to the west in the near Unity; you are always in range of a RMRA repeater when traveling through Central Wisconsin.  You will find standard analog repeaters, one with IRLP; along with digital repeaters like our System Fusion and D-Star.
