One of the best repeaters to keyup and have a great QSO in the Tri-State area is the Alpine, Armstrong Tower - W2MR located in Alpine N.J. When my tech lic was posted I wanted to go straight to 2m simplex. For some reason I was never into using my local repeaters. I met Mike (KC0BRA) on 2m simplex. He was my first contact. We spoke on and off and he told me about the W2MR repeater. Now I'm on W2MR everyday. The people on W2MR are some of the coolest down to earth people I have ever spoken to, Almost every night my jaw hurts from laughing so much. We all have a good time.

Thanks to Mike S. (KD2KWD) for taking the picture for me.
