Amateur Radio in Sevier County*
There are a ton of options out there, which I hope to summarize on this site.
I believe the closest LINKED REPEATER that has coverage of Sevier County is:
Knoxville Channel 22 & 17 Linked (NOT for GMRS users)*
The W4KEV repeaters are located all over east and part of middle Tennessee. Four VHF repeaters are linked full time and full duplex. 145.370 t100, 145.410 t127.3, 147.195 t100 and 147.345 t 118.8. These repeaters cover from Nashville eastward to North and South Carolina along with parts of Georgia, Alabama, Kentucky, Virginia and sometimes W. Virginia. Everything from 10 meters to 900mhz is available for any amateur to use. 53.250 is the busiest 6 meter repeater in the south. And if you’re into UHF, please go to the MTEARS page for a list of all the UHF repeaters in east Tennessee and across the state. The main goal is to promote peace in the Ham radio community.
