There is an ATV repeater here in Portland.

It is 426.25 MHz in NTSC AM, 1253.25 FM NTSC out.

I haved worked the repeater here from home.  I an also transmit on 
1240-1300 FM TV as well but it's not used locally.  There is also a 900 
MHz FM TV input around here as well.

Most of the gear is semi-home brew.
