Steel City 2m FM Repeater is now running HIGH POWER
All Steel City members are request to test out our two meter repeater and give signal report back via the clubs email reflector. This past Wednesday Karl and myself hooked the 2 meter amplifier back up to the clubs repeater. We would like to get some signal report on how it is get out in our previous weak areas. Also please give feedback on any noise reports that you might hear on the repeater. So lets see how far we can get out now!
UPDATE: Some noise started to leak though to the amp will be intermittent while we track the noise issue down…
WE NEED A WORK PARTY THIS SATURDAY AT 0900 FOR PLACING CONDUIT IN THE TRENCHES FROM THE CLUB HOUSE TO THE TOWERS. SINCE WE HAD SO MUCH FUN LAST SATURDAY, I THOUGHT YOU ALL WOULD WANT TO GET TOGETHER AGAIN. THIS WILL COMPLETE THE CONDUIT JOB WHICH I’M SURE EVERYONE WOULD LIKE TO SEE.
PLEASE COME AND HELP REMEMBER IT’S YOUR CLUB!!!
Today’s work party was very successful and a lot of future infrastructure was put in place. We placed conduit buried to the driveway for a near future camera so members can check out the drive way condition. Also conduit was run to the telephone pole to move the inverted L over to the wooden telephone pole. And finally a conduit was put in place to that empty far tower so we can put an antenna on top of it.
Thanks go out to:
Chuck, Art, Karl, Nate, Tim, Dave, Joe
