On September 24th, Peter VK5BE and Nick VK5NJS travelled to Mount Richmond to install the new coaxial cables to the antennas.
A trench was dug (by hand) from the Comms hut to the tower, then 2 new coaxial cables installed in conduit in the trench before being back-filled.
The site is now finally in readiness to relocate the repeater from the Clubrooms, where it has been “on test” for over 3 years, to Mount Richmond.
A date is yet to be determined, but hopefully in the coming weeks. Peter is considering Sunday 15/10/23 to coincide with a Portland Club Picnic at Mt Richmond.
