The 690 repeater is also accessible via Echolink using the ZL2EI-R node 708442
The Wanganui 690 repeater covers areas including Taupo, Kapiti, Horowhenua, Manawatu, Wanganui, and parts of the top of the South Island.
As of 25 November 2019 a new repeater link installed at Kaharoa Road (grid RF70GH78KB) linking Wanganui’s 690 repeater to South Taranaki’s 705 (grid RF70FK22GD) and New Plymouth’s 720 (grid RF70AT61RP) repeaters. (Click here to see a PDF of the linking setup.)
This has increased the coverage to most of the Taranaki area.
