6 Meter Repeater Project Part 3

 

Closer and Closer to the End!

Well, here is what has happened so far…

 

The 6 Mtr Repeater, VHF/UHF remote base radios have been installed in the short rack (see Pic). Everything tests great and our next project is the  duplexers. We got held up do to issues getting the parts custom made, but it looks like we are on track now.

 

Here are a couple of photos of Zach and Emery (KG5HFI) putting up Emery's tower where the repeater antenna will go!

 

We made an accounting of the project dollars for everyone to see.  We need more donations to the project so please contact Emery kg5hfi@arrl.net or Toby n5sim@arrl.net for more info.

 

Paid = dollars out of pocket

Donated = Donated

Not Funded = We have the item from stock, just not paid for.

 

What you don't see is the tons of personal hours and sacrifice people have put into making this happen. All of the running around, gas money and wives putting up with us, we thank you all greatly!

 

Also, Emery KG5HFI is placing the antenna on his personal tower and providing space in his personal storage unit. He has placed an aircon unit in the storage to keep the system cool, that a great sacrifice on his part and I think he need a special thumbs up for that!

 

Again, we want to thank ALL of you who have assisted in making this happen, we hope you will enjoy it...
