Testing Mt Eckersley repeater

VK3RSW on test – now linked into the SE 2m network

Today, Saturday February 27th, the Heywood repeater that was put on test recently at our Clubrooms, has now been linked into the South East 2m repeater network.

This repeater will allow members to access the SE network from the city of Mount Gambier, and its immediate surrounds.

This will be of a benefit to those Mount Gambier members who are currently experiencing difficulties in accessing The Bluff repeater due to an ongoing issue with its coverage.

The SERG repeater team have been working tirelessly to provide the best coverage possible during these uncertain times.

The repeater at the Clubrooms transmits on 146.875 MHz, and receives on 146.275 MHz. (No CTCSS tone is required)

It will be available for all Sunday broadcasts, and Friday night meetings and skeds whilst on test.

In order for this linking to occur, the IRLP/Echolink facility on our 70cm repeater will be unavailable until further notice. The 70cm repeater remains available, it’s just that we’ve temporarily made use of the UHF antenna at the clubrooms preventing this end of the link for IRLP/Echolink. Another antenna is being explored.
