County Works to Repair Radio Repeater Tower:

WALLACE -- The rough North Idaho winter weather recently knocked out a radio repeater tower on top of Goose Peak (north of Wallace) and Shoshone County is working to get the tower repaired. A radio repeater is a combination of a radio receiver and a radio transmitter that receives a signal and retransmits it, so that two-way radio signals can cover longer distances. A repeater sited at a high elevation can allow two mobile stations, otherwise out of line-of-sight propagation range of each other, to communicate. Repeaters are found in professional, commercial and government mobile radio systems, and also in amateur radio. According to Shoshone County commissioner Mike Fitzgerald, getting the tower repaired is incredibly important for several reasons. "The Goose Peak repeater tower houses communication equipment that is essential to multiple responding and emergency agencies operating in the northeastern portions of our county and adjoining Montana," Fitzgerald said.
