I operate the W4LSG 2 Meter FM Repeater on Ivy Mountain in Clarkesville, GA.  This system is in the same location as the former K4HCA 147.120 repeater operated by Harold Hairston (SK).  The site at Ivy Mountain is used by Habersham County for their public service radio systems.

W4LSG Repeater Coverage Map

This repeater seems to work pretty good with a 50w mobile within a 50 mile radius.  It should be usable while mobile in and around these areas:

Lula, Alto, Cleveland, Helen, Lakemont, Batesville, Sautee Nacoochee, Clarkesville, Demorest, Cornelia, Baldwin, Tallulah Falls, Rabun Gap, Dillard, Turnerville, Mountain City, Clayton, Commerce, Maysville, Carnesville, Lavonia, Royston, Bowman, Toccoa, and more.

South Carolina
Fairplay, Westminster, Walhalla, Mountain Rest, and more.  

I occasionally link the repeater to Echolink (W4LSG-R #628293) and am working on a full time link radio.  When it's linked, you can access the repeater via the Echolink app for PC, iPhone, or Android.  Occasionally, I may also link the machine to Echolink conference systems such as *Georgia* or *SCARS*.  When linked, local RF traffic will go across the link to other systems.  Remote users will come across the link into W4LSG-R and will be indicated by a courtesy tone.  

If you hear a voice ID ("W4LSG Repeater"), then Echolink is running.  When I get the full time link up, I'll try to have a schedule for it to auto connect to certain systems for Nets and such.

DTMF Tones for Echolink:
08 - Announces all connected stations
## - disconnects all connected stations
(dial node number) - connects to node
