WV8BSA Repeaters

You can find a list of frequencies in use on-site during the World Scout Jamboree at WSJ — On Site Operating Frequencies.

The Summit Repeater Association was formed in March 2013 to support the repeaters at The Summit near Mount Hope, West Virginia. These three repeaters were provided by Icom America as part of their sponsorship of the Boy Scouts of America and their support to the 2013 National Scout Jamboree. They will remain in place for the next several years supporting not only the Jamboree but all events at The Summit as well as the local community.WV8BSA-Lucida-Sans-Font

In May 2013, the Summit Repeater Association was granted the call sign WV8BSA for use with these repeaters. If you’re headed to any other event at The Summit, here’s the frequencies. The FM repeaters support Echolink. So you can reach these repeaters from around the world either by Echolink or via D-Star.
