HARK's first project

Installing a 2 meter repeater (22/82) on the Hudson Bay Divide.

The repeater was relocated to 10/70 at Mt. Baldy, south of the Marias Pass in 1976. Another repeater was added to replace the One at Hudson Bay. In 1978 a remote base was installed at Mt Baldy and the 10/70 repeater was linked to a repeater at Plains.  The Hudson Bay Repeater has been updated periodically and now uses Motorola equipment both VHF and UHF, plus a digipeater and APRS site was installed in 2015.
