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 on nature rolls in when it is dropped down to safe guard the station.
* 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 is rolling in and the BC205 is dropped down so we apologise if you receive a reduced signal during this time _____________________________________________________________
