Two-Meter 146.88 Repeater On the Air 1/15/09

The two-meter repeater (147.88-) intended for mountaintop deployment has been placed on the air to substitute while the GE 146.70 machine is being repaired. It is currently on the air. The intent is to have PL 103.5, however, it may be operating carrier squelch.

This is a 30-watt Maggiore repeater, with a special low-current controller. 4-Cavity duplexer. Located at Marty Ruud's residence.

Two-Meter 146.70 Repeater Damaged 10/15/08

The two-meter repeater (147.30+) was damaged when it was being moved for maintenance. The wiring harness for the duplexer cavities was torn. The harness was repaired, but is awaiting tuning up.

The repeater uses PL, tone squelch, thus requires that you send it Tone = 103.5 hz for it to hear you. It also sends out a similar tone, and optionally you can use the tone to help keep your receiver quiet.
