Attention all area Amateurs:
-Radio technicians went up on Aspen Mountain recently to do maintainance on the 61 and 94 repeaters.
-A 2500 Joule surge protector was installed on the repeaters to protect them from future damage. The new phone patch will also be protected by this surge protector when it is installed at the repeater site.
-The PL tones on both repeaters were changed from 107.2 back to 100 Hz.
-The time-out-timer length on both the 61 and 94 repeaters were increased from 90 seconds to 210 seconds to allow for more time to ragchew with our friends without the timer cutting us off.
-This is an article written about intermod interferance by W1GZD, David W. Potter. This will help us fix the 94 repeater. The frequency causing this disruption is coming from a nearby law enforcement transmitter on Aspen in the 166 MHz range. When spring comes, and weather permits, Tower work/maintainance will be scheduled.
-Emergency Management's Repeater was Narrowbanded. If you are involved with EMA, Please don't forget to use 2.5khz deviation to comply with the new narrowbanding regulations. Wideband Radio Transmissions are no longer allowed above 150 Mhz
The 61 repeater needs to be looked at by technicians when the weather permits. The feedline is dangling from the tower, and needs to be secured. This will be done this spring.
The Phone Patch on the 61 is down, and has been deemed by the radio tech to be un-repairable. We are ordering a new phone patch soon, and there will also be a new phone number, allowing all Sweetwater county calls.
