This fall, Michael said he received an e-mail from one of the new hams in the group, informing him that they'd started the North Yellowstone Amateur Radio Club and that one of the first things the club did was install a repeater on 2 meters. It covers the entire distance along U.S. 89 from I-90 to the park entrance and beyond.
If you're in the area, it's on 146.98 MHz with a CTCSS tone of 100 Hz. Kalter told CQ that he and Linda had only ignited the spark of interest, while the hams of NYARC should be recognized for doing the hard work of getting a repeater, getting it coordinated and getting it on the air.
