The Arizona GMRS Repeater Club maintains only one repeater in the valley: the Phoenix High Powered 550 machine, covering the metro area, and well beyond in some areas. Mountain top installations are always the best, and it's tough to get a repeater on a mountain here in the Phoenix area. Dues from members go to the maintenance and associated fees with placing the repeaters in the highly competitive locations. The other repeaters listed are maintined by club members.
