A backup repeater to the main repeater is operated in standby mode with an antenna on top of the water tower at the SW corner of Virginia and Custer roads in McKinney, Texas.

 

One APRS machine uses an antenna on top of the water tower just east of US Hwy 5 in Melissa,Texas and the other APRS digipeater has an antenna on the side of a tower at the KMKI AM broadcast station in New Hope, Texas just east of McKinney. The UHF machine is at the same location as the Melissa APRS unit.
