New and different? Yes! Better? In some ways.
Back in May of this year, when the 53.670 MHz repeater went on the air, I received an e-mail from a very wise person. He said, “Congratulations! But, this is just the beginning. You will NEVER be finished working on the repeater.” So very true.
Not long after repeater version 1.0 went on the air, I received a donation of yet another VHF low band Mastr II. My thought was, “I can bring this home, take my time studying and converting it to 6 meters, and have a spare!” Well, as most hams can attest, little projects mushroom into bigger projects, consuming way more time and money than you expected.
Now that repeater version 2.0 is on the air, I’ll have a little more spare time to document what happened. Stay tuned for more frequent posts in the coming weeks, and I’ll fill you in on what’s under the hood.
