Repeater Donated to Radio Club d'Haiti

A Vertex VXR-7000 repeater, initially brought to Haiti as part of ARRL relief efforts after last year's earthquake there, has been permanently donated to the Radio Club d'Haiti through the efforts of the ARRL's Ham Aid program and the Radio Club Dominicano. The Dominican Republic shares the island of Hispanola with Haiti. The ARRL Letter reports that the repeater will be linked to other repeaters on the island as part of a plan to build a new nationwide amateur radio network.
