LX, the repeater operators paradise

... or repeater proliferation ...

Do you know Luxembourg, that small country in Europe? Exactly 2586,4 km2 "big" with around 600.000 people living there, with less than 500 being ham operators, at most 50 of them active hams?

Well that Luxembourg seems to have become the repeater operators paradise! As I am writing this (July 2020), there are 22 amateur radio repeaters on VHF and UHF in the country! Let me show you some figures:


year VHF rep. UHF rep. Total rep. km2 / rep. OMs / rep. active OMs / rep.
2012 2 1 3 862 165 16,5
2016 3 9 12 216 42 4.2
2017 4 10 14 185 36 3.6
2018 5 15 20 129 25 2.5
2020 5 17 22 118 23 2.3

What's best: more repeaters even seem to be planned. So see you in the near future for new figures!
