Repeater and Propagation Issues

Posted: July 12, 2012 in Mancorad News, Mancorad Radio Club, W9DK Operations

Have reports that the 146.610 repeater is acting up.

It may be picking up an Illinois repeater on the same frequency, or possibly a PL issue.

During the day it seems to have sorted out – if an area amateur helped, Thank You!  If the repeater just decided to behave, well then we were lucky.

As a reminder the present 146.610 repeater is on borrowed time, and will be moved & reconfigured when the antenna tower comes down.

If the 146.610 becomes an ongoing problem the club may be faced with discontinuing that repeater prior to the last possible moment.

As a back up the 145.110 repeater remains available for local use, though unfortunately with a smaller coverage footprint than the main repeater.
