WIK01

UHF CB repeater at Cape Lambert. The repeater is located at the KP5 Robe River Mining Comms Site Just north of the Wickham town site. 

More details from the ACMA can be found here.

"The old Philips UHF CB repeater was changed out to a more modern MX800 in about 2008 by Rio Tinto. They also asked if they could take over the licence. Which they did.

It is on the new KP5 tower at Cape Lambert with a new folded dipole and new coax run. Last time I had a listen to it about a year ago, it was sounding rather sick." (Steve VK6HV)
