Re: 220 repeater WA7PFB 223.9 - 88.5

Paul Butzi (W7PFB)
 

If you’re using the Btech tri-bander HT it’s specced at 4w 1.25m and 70cm.

But yeah, it looks like I can’t hear too well to the north.  There’s a pretty big rise between you and me but I also noticed poor coverage in the valley up near NE 124th and the prop simulation doesn’t match that.

I suspect I want the antenna up quite a bit higher.  Plans for that in the works…

Thanks for the feedback!

Have no problems reaching the W7WRG repeater on 224.580 located up on Haystack with just the HT's antenna.

Looks like your repeater is deaf to the north Paul..

I couldn't hit it from with my HT in my yard (QTH is a mile or so off of Big Rock and Odell)  If I had an antenna with gain I may have, but this is the stock TH-D74 rubber duck so no joy. :-(

Paul,

 

Similar to Lou and Jim I only have a 5 watt HT with a Tri-band Nagoya NA-320 triband antenna. Unfortunately, with my setup I cant trigger the repeater from my QTH up near the high school.  

 

So great that you’re setting this up!

Like Lou, I only have a 220 HT, so limited to 5 watts and a "dummy load antenna".

I did hear the repeater ID itself while in Downtown Duvall this afternoon, but was unable to hit the repeater from there or from my home QTH east of town.

I am thinking I can setup my Buddipole Antenna tomorrow and try again.  But don't have test equipment for 222 Mhz, so will be a challenge getting antenna tuned...

I heard you this morning, tried to dash over to the radio to respond but didn’t get there in time!  You were full quieting into the repeater.  What setup were you using?

Thanks for giving it a test!

My Niece has video streaming service for workouts and being young she signed up and videos are about to expire without further payment. My question is the best way to capture these and put them on the hard drive with little or no expense?

I will dive into this latter when given time and was just hoping for a simple cost effective answer as it could apply to other things one day.

UHF repeater radio test

Tom WA7TBP
 

Good evening everyone:

Sorry for the short notice on this, but I just learned of this test Thursday night.

Lynn Burlingame, N7CFO, has built a portable UHF repeater. He would like to test it tomorrow, Saturday, Nov 16. The test will be conducted from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM. The repeater is on 440.500 MHz, Plus 5 MHz shift, Transmit tone is 88.5 Hz. The repeater is near the WSP Office in Eastgate. (Bellevue). Please call Lynn, N7CFO to make a contact.  He would appreciate an e-mail from you with the following information:

    * Radio make and model
    * Power output
    * Antenna type
    * Antenna height
    * The street address where you made the contact
    * Signal report

This repeater is located at Lynn's house and the test is simulating a failure of the main mountain top repeaters that we have around here.

I hope you can help Lynn with this test. Thank you in advance for helping out.

73,

Tom, WA7TBP
