Dear Juneau County Radio Club Members;
First of all, Happy New Year hope it will be a very good year for all. This last year has been trying for most. If anyone has fallen ill to the virus, please take care and our prayers are with you.
This year we would like to address the antenna at the South Tower Site. Currently this is a 2 bay antenna that was given to us by Jeff Rogers. We have had discussions about the loss in coverage of the repeater. One issue is that the antenna is only at 140 feet in height. the old repeater had a transmit and receive no duplexer. also we were able to have a transmit height at the top of the tower. before receiving the current antenna we had prices of a 4 bay antenna of aprox $1500. I will look into this again and bring a proposal to the members.
Thanks to all who use Amazon Smile!
When the virus subsides we will again have fundraisers, and test sessions.
I will be scheduling new test session Feb, April, June and November.
Please include an email address and phone number, when sending your dues.
Next test session
