Apologise for any inconvenience when our service is interrupting your use
This repeater uses a configuration of two antennas:
* Antenna no1 is a "Diamond BC205 UHF only" unit 40ft high. (ASL in this location is 6 to 8ft). This antenna remains in operation until the forces of nature of roll in when it becomes unsafe and is dropped down to safe guard the station and antenna.
THEN ANTENNA No2 COMES IN TO PLAY
* Antenna no 2 is an old gal. Purchased in 2003."A Diamond X75 tribander. 2mtr, 70cm, and 6mtr."She is attached to the side of the house and again about 40ft in height. It is used for the repeater when adverse WX has rolling in and the BC205 has been dropped down so we apologise if your RX & TX is reduced during this time. _____________________________________________________________
