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.
