Repeater replacement to require downtime

      No Comments on Repeater replacement to require downtime

FWRC members will install two new repeater packages next week to replace existing equipment on 146.76 MHz and 444.875 MHz. The transition to new equipment will require the repeaters to be temporarily off the air, beginning sometime Monday morning, March 30. The repeaters should return to the air about 24 hours later, sometime Tuesday, March 31.

Al Burke, WB9SSE expects that the VHF repeater should have greater range after the change, because the new receiver has greater sensitivity than the radio currently in service and the new transmitter will feed a 150-watt power amplifier. replacement to require downtime
