!! Gatesville Repeater Update - Significant Changes!!
Effective as of December 28, 2019, the W5AMK Gatesville repeater on 145.960 (-) PL 123.0 is off the air, having undergone significant changes.  

The repeater has been re-programmed and is now on 145.170 (-) with a PL Tone of 162.2

An EchoLink Node has been installed on the repeater to allow connection with the National Weather Service in Fort Worth during periods of severe weather. When severe weather does not threaten our area, the node will be off

The repeater can be remotely shut-off if it is being mis-used by any person(s). 

Trusteeship has been handed from the Central Texas Amatuer Radio Club to the Coryell County Emergency Management System, and with it, a change in call letters from W5AMK to W5GTS.   

Effective Immediately, both the Coryell County ARES Net, which meets on Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m. and the Central Texas Amateur Radio Net, which meets on Thursday evenings at 8:00 p.m., will move to this repeater system.
