It is with much frustration that we have to report that our “Black Mountain, Mackay” Repeater Site has been broken into a few nights ago…. The door/lock has been busted open, and it’s unfortunate that a Set of 2metre Cavities have been STOLEN!!! Lucky enough for us, no other Radio / Repeater Equipment was Damaged or Stolen. We are and have taken action, police have attended the Scene and we have released an image of the Stolen Cavities…..
As most of you would be aware, these are a very expensive unit, and can be $3000-$4000 to replace. Please keep an eye out or ear out for this, maybe the culprits may approach someone to sell them or even take them to Scrap Metal merchants for Cash. We are currently circulating this info to Local Scrap Metal Merchants in Mackay District, to keep an eye out and to contact us and the Police, should they show up
