Progress at Mt Richmond 26/6/23

Another very successful visit to Mount Richmond today.

  • Solar panel mounting frame completed and set to the “winter” position.
  • Solar panels wired in a series/parallel configuration, with isolating diodes.
  • Mini-rack placed into position and batteries installed.
  • New solar controller installed and tested OK.

Photos attached showing progress.

Both the 2m repeater antenna, plus the 70cm link yagi now left on site for the riggers.

Still a few minor low priority tasks still to be completed before final commissioning, but all is now ready to deploy the repeater once the antennas are installed.
