Mark Baker KG0PA's presentation at the NCARC Aug-17-2002
club meeting about Defending the Future Ham Radio inspired
Steve Henry N7GN to write
this useful email
to the NCARC email list. Please read it and help us.
Thanks to Randy Long W0AVV and Steve Babcoke WB0UWE for fixing the 147.195+ MHz repeater's final amplifier, and then a voltage regulator.

Thanks to Duff Dyer W0XYZ, our 449.575- (100 Hz) repeater is much
improved. On Sat-Dec-9, Duff and Ted Cline N0RQV changed it from
the beam pointed at Denver to the old 440 vertical. The 440 repeater
now has battery backup. The new battery charger should be much more
reliable. Duff is working on adding a phone patch to the 440. How does
the repeater sound?
