Welcome from the PALS Repeater Group!

ATTENTION PALS DMR USERS! The 444.050 Peoria DMR repeater will be changing to a new frequency very soon. We will update this page with all the details once the new frequency is announced. Once moved, you will need to update all of your radios to the new frequency. This move will allow us to put the analog 444.050 back on the air! It has always been a temporary situation to have DMR on the 444.050 frequency. We initially did this for testing purposes and the time has come for each to have their own freq! Thanks everyone and we will announce the new frequency very soon!

WX9PIA is the call sign of the PALS Repeater Group, a local amateur radio club that owns and operates three repeater systems, as well as an APRS Wide Area Digi/I-Gate in Peoria, Illinois.

The 147.330 MHz analog repeater, the 444.050 MHz analog repeater, and the 442.200 MHz DMR repeater. Our analog repeaters are linked together 24/7 and also have Echolink capabilities. Some are used for emergency communications as well as weather spotting.

The repeaters are open to all amateur radio operators, so please add them to your memory bank and get on the air! We firmly believe that amateur radio is one of the best hobbies in the world! There’s nothing more discouraging than a “quiet or dead” repeater, so we hope that by putting these systems on the air that you will be able to make some new friends, have lots of fun, and keep ham radio alive in central Illinois! We hope you enjoy using all of the repeater systems and we look forward to a QSO with you very soon!
