            The Acadiana Amateur Radio Association, Inc. owns, maintains, and operate four repeaters.

146.820- 600 PL 103.5  W5DDL  EchoLink Node:  759629
     The 146.820 W5DDL repeater now has a new home. It is now located on top of the Chase Bank Towers in downtown Lafayette, LA. It is approximately 250 feet above ground level using a DB-228 antenna, running 10 watts out of the duplexer. It now has a PL tone of 103.5 which means in order to key up the repeater, you will need to program your radio(s) to transmit a PL frequency of 103.5.
     Also, the repeater transmits a PL tone of 103.5 which means if you enable this feature on your transceiver(s) receive, you will only hear the 146.820 W5DDL repeater, eliminating the interference from other repeaters on the same frequency as this one.
     146.820 Repeater Update  Thanks to Charlie Morrison N5WE, AARA's new Yaesu DR-1X Dual Band Dual Mode Repeater went on the air today (January 14, 2015) at around 1 PM . The first contact was made between Charlie N5WE and Herman KN5GRK. Because of better receiver sensitivity and more power out, the range of the repeater should be extended by 5 or 10 miles.  Early reports from Tom W5OHJ indicated this to be true, but only time will tell. Currently the repeater is in AUTO mode, so if it receives an analog signal it will transmit an analog signal.  The same is true if the repeater receives a Digital signal.  If you want to know more about this repeater, take a few minutes and watch this YouTube clip:       https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNjgHUhhMmA
