440 is back! Get on the air!

Thanks to BB Odenthal (KG6YGC) for installing our new Bridgecom Systems 440MHz repeater yesterday!  We are on the air with the 440 (Freq 446.92 (-), PL 127.3), and the new 220 repeater is next for Santiago.  For now, it is “stand alone” (not linked with the rest of the 220 system), but it sounds great so get on the air!   Thanks again, BB

System is Restored and Operating!

The Santiago Peak machines have been repaired and the system is back up for relatively normal operation.

Please remember to check in to the net, Thursdays at 20:00 (8PM) local time.

Santiago Peak 220 Down

A large Edison party went to Santiago Peak on Thursday, Feburary 11 to work on several things including the EARN system. Hugh Headly and I did some troubleshooting and found the 220 receiver was completely deaf; probably due to electrical damage. Board level diagnostics discovered a receive transistor with a dead short from base to emitter and, unfortunately, we did not have spares to attempt a field repair. The repeater was removed from the site while we attempt to find parts for repair. The 440 repeater is still operational.
