Green Bay Repeater Status

GB1 512

The Green Bay Repeater build is well underway!

Most of the hardware is installed including the S-Com 7330 repeater controller, duplexer, power supply, circulator etc.

Bob has been busy modifying and tuning the GE Delta radios which are used throughout the system to keep the audio clean and consistent.

Next is point to point wiring for control and logic and then building all the rf cables to interconnect the various radios to duplexer, amplifier, etc. Expect that to be done in the next few weeks and then we fire it up and do all the audio level setting and tweaking. The expectation is that all this work will be complete and ready for a burn-in by mid February.

New Madison Repeater Online

Madison Tower View
The new Madison repeater (444.475) was installed over the weekend and seems to be working well. The repeater antenna is at 385' overlooking Madison, should provide excellent portable coverage. We have already had mobile reports from Janesville which is pretty cool!

Many thanks to John W9VG and Brad KC9EUU for providing extra muscle and assistance during the installation.
