I am running a Gateway/Digipeater at W9CHA-10 on 145.030 MHz. It is located in the Silver Springs Shores area, between where Don Freer’s Gateway was running on Baseline Rd and the SK W3HII-10 Gateway was running in Oklawaha. It has a good range, I can connect directly to the EOC Winlink with it. Below is a current map of Gateways in Marion County.

Currently I am running it about 12 hours a day, 0800 to 2000 Eastern Time. I take it off the air during lightning events, which happen fairly often in this area. Feel free to use it anytime. If you have a problem with it, or constructive information, please e-mail me at

There is more Winlink information on the MERT website at
