    I don't hear any activity here in the Nashville, middle Tn. area..Does anyone know of any active repeaters?

    I would often travel there on business and found 145.110 to be a busy repeater.

    Don't all the repeaters in Nashville have country music playing in the background?

    Though someone was going to say each "new" country star is just another repeater.

    Activity runs hot and cold, like most places, but 146.67, 146.76, the Brentwood machine on 145.210 is right near you, Music Mountain 146.88 (114.8) and 145.39 (114.8).

    There's also a lot of simplex on 146.415, including a net on Saturday and Wednesday nights at 8:00pm.

    Thanks I will look into those. The 146.67 used to be in constant use along with the 760, but since coming back into town, just silence..I will try simplex.

    You'll hear the 67 and the 210 machines during commute times. The Williamson County ARES does a net Monday at 7:00 (I think) on the 210. There's also an NTS net, but I forget when that is.

    Jump on 146.415 tomorrow (Wednesday) night at 8:00. Also check the web page,

    Short Mountain: 146.910- t: 114.8 - they have nets like every night. covers a good hunk of Middle TN.
    Maury County: 147.120+ t: 127.3 busy some times.
    Others have mentioned the WCARES machines...etc.
    Most of the other machines, the only activity is the IDer's :(

    I agree with N4DJT, the Short Mountain Repeater Club is pretty active (tho, I think it's closer to Murfreesboro). Brentwood (145.21) has a good amount of activity as well. There are a lot of linked repeaters in the area, but I can't remember them based on frequency, only the names I've given them on my radios. I'd be happy to chat with you anytime. I've got about 50 repeaters in the mid state area programmed into my radio that I scan whenever I'm driving around.

    I haven't heard much simplex at all, but I was talking to a guy yesterday that said the short mountain club does a fair amount of simplex groups, so I'm going to figure out my crossband repeat and try to check in to some of those from my HT (using the crossband in my car, in the driveway).

    73's, David
