Our club has a number of repeaters, a digipeater and a beacon.
A summary is given below, much more information on this can be found in a presentation made by Grant, ZL2BK: Marlborough Repeaters

2m Repeaters, all with the usual 600kHz offset:

These repeaters are all linked giving wide access to the Marlborough Region, and beyond.
They are also all linked into the IRLP network, our node number is: 6285

The Kaikoura VHF repeater on 146.900 MHz is not linked yet, but we are planning to get this done in the future via the Ward repeater.
