Hey guys, 442.750 repeater is now operating at peak effiency. We have brought the sensitivity to .12UV. (Which is outstanding) I can raise it from my qth which is 16 miles from the repeater with my handheld in L2.(YaesuVX7R). Lets test the repeater and see how it works. 73's and God Bless

146.865 Repeater

We switched the repeater to the GE Mastr 2 VHF. Power output went from 70 watts, to 100 watts output. Found the bug issue. It was a bad adaptor,( go figure) Thanks for all the interest in the repeater system. PL tone is off, so no tone required at this time. Will be placing a preamp on the repeater in the future. 73's Keith B.

 53.010 is now encoding again. I found the problem with repeater. With careful work, it is now working. Try it out and see if you like it.

 We finally got the 53.170 repeater back up and running Thursday. FL( WW4FL) did an outstanding job with the machine. It is still operating at low power, but works great. Will replace the 250 watt amp in the future to bring the tx back to par. Operating at 35 watts now. WW4DC repeater system

 Hey Guys, With the help of John (KD4LHP) we will have IRLP capabilities soon. He helped fund the purchase of the IRLP Board. With a little luck, the Node will be up and running by wednesday. July 13, 2011. Let me know what your thoughts are. All feedback positive or Negative is ok.
