VHF Repeater Upgrade

VHF Repeater Upgrade

This past week our club upgraded our VHF repeater. We are running a Yaesu DR-2X. During the installation, we discovered our shack’s exhaust fan had stopped working.

We have ordered an upgraded shuttered exhaust fan. Added will be a protected vent to allow for crossflow ventilation. We look forward to having a much cooler shack.

Also to be installed will be rack mounted surge suppression, and a shelf for the repeater. Our club is now operating both VHF and UHF FM/C4FM repeaters.

Anyone wishing to mute the C4FM transmissions need only to set their radio CTCSS (PL) to 123.0.
