The 147.12 W1DC repeater was operated by the 1200 Radio Club since the 1970's.
The club consisted primarily of Honeywell employees. When Honeywell left the area,
the club survived for many years, but attrition did finally win. In August, 2021,
the remaining members of the 1200 Radio Club voted to transfer responsibility for
operating and maintaining the repeater to MMRA. MMRA voted to accept the repeater.|
MMRA intends to continue to operate the repeater from the same location.
The W1DC callsign has been transferred to MMRA as MMRA/1200 Radio Club, with W1USN as trustee.
MMRA inherited a number of upgrades, purchased but never implemented by the 1200 Radio and will be installing the new equipment in the next six months. As part of this effort, Billerica will also be integrated into the MMRA network. When this happens, the input PL will change from 103.5 to 146.2.
