Hello all, the 444.625 repeater has been relocated to High Point N.C. after being off the air for about a year. With the N4HRS repeater on Jonas ridge being strong at times, the repeater couldn't be used at its old location. The new location in High Point is showing promise for coverage. It looks to cover a large area East of High Point. Check it out. Oh P.S., it is now linked to our 442.425 repeater in Fancy Gap VA. Enjoy everyone

We have finally replaced the antenna on the 146.865 repeater. It appears to be solid and reports are flooding in about the improvement on the coverage. Try it out and lets see how good it does. Thanks for all the interest in the repeater systems.

The 146.865 and 224.340 both have a High SWR reading. I have disabled them both to keep from burning the Amplifiers up. Weather permitting, I will get the 2 meter repeater back up, and if there is time, I will work on the 220 repeater. The rain has found a way in. Will keep you updated on the progress

The Tuesday Night FM is back with the assistance of W4VSP and K4EZ. They put their echolink node back online. We can now use the system again and support the FM net. The FM net has been running as long as I have had my license which is more than 17 years. It doesn't get the traffic that it deserves. Please pass the word to others, that the net is available now on the Piedmont Repeater System. All the repeaters on the triad repeater system will air it. The list of repeaters are on the Repeater List Tab.

Hello guys, we had an issue with 146.865 over the weekend. We have recently resolved the problems. We were unaware that the repeater was dropping power until I had a rough time hearing it in Winston Salem. After several tests, I discovered the Duplexers for 2 meter weren't calibrated properly. So I went through the duplexer, and realigned them for the frequencies we are using. And now, it looks good. Power output to the antenna is back at 90 watts. Before only 10 watts was making it. Lets try it out, and give it a test run.

Hey guy's, Justed wanted to let you know, that I have sent off a request for link frequncies for the Various repeaters we are linking up to. We are now waiting for the SERA repeater Coordinator to assign frequencies to us. Frank Lynch is a busy man, and is behind on the duties, so it will take a while. When I get the assignments, I will let you know. God Bless and 73's
