    Hi Dan,

    I'm going to try to hit that repeater from Amelia Island, with my mind boggling killer SlimJim and astounding 25 W of power. If I can borrow a good SWR meter, some day I'll know how much of that collossal RF energy manages to leave the antenna!

    e.t.a. Well that was a big fail! Is your new repeater on the air full time yet? I'll try to raise you on one of the Nassau repeaters...

      Hi Bruce,
      Thanks for trying to get into the repeater but the repeater is not up yet. I am waiting for it to be shipped from Yeasu, they are back ordered and will be shipped in a few weeks.
      The repeater will have all the new hardware and firmware and the repeater will also have Wires-X connected to it.

          The duplexer is a Motorola T1504A 4-cavity BpBr. The cans are 4” x 4”. The tuning rods are made of invar.
          The duplexers have been tuned and look great. The 5 MHz ham band separation is a breeze for this unit.

            I also have a NEW Advanced Receiver Research (Ar2) preamp P432VDG for the repeater if needed.

              I have ordered a DCS-23 Microminiature DCS Encoder-Decoder board from Communication Specialist for use in the repeater.
              I have ordered a Scom 7330 controller for the repeater.
              I have ordered a Tigertronics SignaLink USB to use to link in EchoLink to the repeater or controller.
              I got a Yaesu FTM-100DR radio and a HRI-200 Wires-X interconnect to have a node to be used on the repeater so that the repeater can be linked to other repeaters.

                    Hi Dan,

                    how soon do I test this new 444.500 of yours. My Quaggi is about 75% completed, it might get there when finished

                      We was just looking to link with a North Florida Repeater for friendly everyday QSO's. Our 70cm repeater is hardly ever used it is a brand new system fusion DRT-1X at that. I am currently using my FTM 100 dr with wires-x to link the repeater. Hopefully with some activity we can bring our repeater back to life hihi.

                        You are welcome to link to the repeater the room # is 28264 the repeater is on 2 meter at 147.360 + with a 127.3 tone
                        The DR-1X Fusion and Wires-X dose not play together when connecting the repeater to a controller. For that reason I decided to make the DR-1X Fusion repeater a stand alone repeater with Wires-X and then link into the 440 machine connected to the controller. I am in the testing stage.
                        You are welcome to connect with us and see how things work out.
