Tech Report- Andy/Bill
We have been having intermittent issues with the 147.000 repeater for
some time. Issue was initially with the receiver and most recently the
exciter and PA. we now have 2 good exciters, but may not have access to
the PA until it is checked/repaired.
There is the 4 bay DB products VHF antenna at Willie's that we can use.
We have a loaner Yaesu System Fusion DR1X repeater in place of ours
right now and it is working well. It is being loaned to us by Motorola
Mark and some co-owners to see if we like it.
If our GE assembly is still in good shape, it can be modified to accept
the input from the DR1X and deliver power for the coverage we would need

Bill-access to the repeater site is limited. If you need to get to the
repeater, please see Bill, Andy, or Joe
