I would add that the 2m repeater installed base is in decline. There are four reasons for this:
1) Most of the practical day-to-day utility of 2m repeaters was lost
when cell phones became common and affordable. This is now increasingly true in remote
areas also due to the popularity of InReach and similar servies.
2) USA/Canada and most nations with similar values and technological/economic capabilities now have a level of preparedness for disaster communications such that there is no longer an emergency
communications mission for 2m
3) It is generally no longer possible to obtain free access to suitable tower sites
4) Due to declining interest in VHF in business and public safety
(among many other reasons) it is no longer possible to purchase
an inexpensive VHF repeater nor to build a VHF repeater inexpensively from parts
While there are some large, well funded, wide area machines still actively supported in major population centers I am seeing many smaller local machines turn into "paper repeaters" especially in remote
areas (A "paper repeater" being a repeater that exists on paper but that does not actually operate).
