Located on the top of Apple Orchard Mountain, this repeater is situated along with an FAA Radar site which used to be an Airforce Radar Site until 1975.

Access is limited, you can hike up the road or the Appalachian Trail to the top, however, going into the fenced in areas will result in some type of punishment/ fine. Best to just view from afar.
