29.620- PL 100
YOu Transmit on 29.520 to the repeater.
PLEASE Log CONTACTS to REPEATER HERE:
Plan is to have MOBILE Remote Receiver from Time to time. Its TONE will Be 118.8
Sorry if your old radio don’t have tone… USE a PC SPEAKER to the mic while you talk…. or better use your smart Phone. Hams are smart… solve your problem.
THIS IS A ONE ANTENNA REPEATER!!!! YES ONE ANTENNA – ONE SITE!!!!!
YES the duplexers are LARGE, there’s a way to get them smaller…. BUT the Q isn’t great in helical short cavity.
The dang 100kc spacing is HARD to get DUPLEXERS to WORK!!! HIGH Q is better for that reason.
Smaller ones… (helical, below guts…) Short Cavity measures…
HOME MADE CAVITIES !!!
So, the repeater runs about 100+ watts to Antenna. I get 140db + of isolation using only the 6 duplexer cavities (cans). 2 cavities are homebrew by Cliff H. and Larry WB4NKM. The Two I made are made from Duct work. I plan on making more from other metals as time-budget premits. Only have just under 3db loss in the duplexer to RX freq, and the antenna is 5/8 wave Sirio 827 (they claim about 1.5 db gain or 3.65 dbi ). Running 7/8″ hardline so minimal loss there on low band. This makes the 10m receiver very happy and low noise. I offend hear stations better than my transmitter allows me to hear them.
Current Plans to add a new seperate antenna for vertical seperation.
The one in New York KQ2H seems to be a major Alligator repeater their information is here. It’s all good though use the tones for the repeater you want. If there are repeaters not toned it may make it harder and you may need more power to overcome the FM capture effect.
Be courteous, Enjoy!
Donate if you want to see it grow.
