22nd June 2016 - Site Visit and update

Post by admin » Thu Jun 23, 2016 6:54 am

Today we visited the site to pay for our electric usage and also a quick check over of the repeater.

All is still functioning very well, but the fan on the 12v power supply was noisy and obviously failing. A quick action with a screwdriver removed and replaced the offending unit. Apart from a layer of dust, everything else was fine.

We are still working on the analogue receive which we hope will be fully functional before the end of the year. Having time to spend on the project is scarce at present, although the new logic control unit is almost complete. Unfortunately, we were ripped off by an amateur electronics parts supplier when we tried to buy some bits for the analogue receive development - but that's another story posted in the 'Amatuer Radio in General' part of the forum.
