This is a request for the sponsorship and use of the UHF DMR repeater for amateur connectivity.

The repeater site aimed to be used is our current container situated an Kloof, covering the greater Pinetown and Durban areas.
The Radio club have been using this site since 1997 and it provides ideal  coverage .
