VK3RSW on test at SERG clubrooms

Today, Sunday February 21st, the VK3RSW repeater was placed on test at the SERG Clubrooms in Mount Gambier.

Currently as a stand alone device, and not linked to the 2m network, it is being tested into a single antenna at the top of the Club tower via its cavity filters.

Any member who can trigger this repeater is welcome to use it to test its performance and reliability.

The repeater transmits on 146.875MHz, and receives on 146.275MHz. The CTCSS tone is not enabled.

If the tests prove successful, it may then be linked to our existing 2m network to further evaluate its performance. In the short term, give it a workout. Reports from mobiles and an idea of its range would be appreciated.

Working VK3RSW on test. Note the link transmitter is unplugged as no antenna connected.
