B.S.R.G. ... What's that?? (v2)

BSRG means Big Shanty Repeater Group. Located in Metro Atlanta, GA, the BSRG We have operated the 146.655 repeater Amateur Radio repeater system (as well as others) for over 25 years. We cover a very wide area due our mountaintop location and our multiple remote voting receivers,

We appreciate all of you who listened to our Space Shuttle broadcasts on our repeaters and watched on the BSRG Amateur Television repeater.

From 1990 to 2012, the BSRG retransmitted all NASA Space Shuttle mission audio non-stop throughout each mission. Our Shuttle audio transmissions (as well as the video feed the Big Shanty TV Repeater provides) were a memorial to Tim Mallory, AI4B. Tim and Ralph (N4NEQ) had an idea years ago to provide this service to the Amateur community. We proudly presented it as a tribute to Tim and his love of radio!
