Status of 146.220/146.820 Repeater System: New duplexer is installed as well a new Kenwood TKR-750K2 repeater. Apparently we still have either a grounding, feedline, or antenna problem as the noise on the system persists. Work will continue on solving this problem as weather permits.

The APRS station is up and running. You can see it's report on the internet by typing in your brower address and then searching for W8MAI-15. Select the word Telemetry to see the DC voltage, temperature inside the repeater building (degrees C) and other digipeater activity.
