ECHOLINK CAPABLE W8YZ-R
A big thank you is due Matt AC8AC, Kevin KD8VHE, John N8JRP & Ken N8VGE for their help in maintenance and upgrades to the Monroe 145.31 machine. A commercial Kenwood TKR 750 repeater installed several years ago to improve reliability of this backup machine, Users will be most aware of the new voice ID system using ID-O-MATIC board. Most users will appreciate the less frequent ID when the repeater is idle and users are monitoring. The hang time and ID changes make ECHOLINK connections more friendly to the IP side of the system..
Maintenance notes include a major cavity tuning and adding a can to allow more separation on the TX side. Over 30 years of service. Installation of a AEA ISO Dipole Antenna.
The system remains available 24-7 without dues or obligation courtesy of the sponsor and friends. There is no need for a PL tone. Users just continue to show courtesy. we thank you.
