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.
The Green Bay tower needs antenna work so unless we have a batch of nice weather the repeater probably won’t be on the air until March-April. More to follow!
