I had to go to Durham V.A. hospital for an appointment today.  2 1/2 hour drive for me.
Found out there's a 70 cm ham radio repeater on the roof of the Durham V.A. hospital (WR4AGC).
I sat in the waiting room talking to hams all over Durham.  How cool is that!
I don't mind the hour long waiting room wait now.

Apparently the RF doesn't mess with any of the medical equipment.
Nobody came running by screaming "code red" when I was talking.  LOL

The V.A. hospital in Fayetteville, AR., is on some high ground. I'll have to check out to see if we have a repeater as well. I generally take an "antenna" book to read. I have gotten some quizzical looks. ha
