The DFW RBA welcomes you to the 29.66 repeater in Dallas - Ft. Worth.
This repeater and other connected repeaters were designed to further the enjoyment of the 29MHz 10 meter FM band segment. The 442.975 N5UA repeater (110.9 Hz) is always connected.
The DFW RBA designs, installs, and maintains these systems at costs incurred by the owners.
The repeater is open to groundwave (or local) stations, as well as the popular use of the band when it opens to countries around the world (skywave).
The primary charter of the DFW RBA is to maintain this system including all of the ancillary equipment required to support it.
