We have been approved to operate a repeater at the new Leeds site on the output freq. of 147.375, input 147.975 with 103.5 Hz tone. We had originally applied for the output freq. of 147.775 but the committee sent the note below:
146.775 has already been reissued to a station in Saco (~60 miles). 147.375 is clear > 100 miles.
Good news all around so long as the repeater gets here before there's too much snow and ice on the site. I am looking into the issue of duplexers (a.k.a. cavity filters/cans).
Leeds repeater has arrived in Maine Monday December 21 and has been set programmed and set up and tested well so far. We are awaiting duplexers, feedline and an antenna
and a tower climber to finish the project.
The 146.610 repeater (PL 88.5) in Auburn is on air with the System Fusion DR-1X repeater.
There is no courtesy beep, drop the carrier to reset the time-out-timer.
The Androscoggin Club owns the Poland Spring repeater 147.315 with a pl tone of 103.5 in and out. For now we are using a System Fusion DR-1 model. The antenna was
moved November 18, 2015 and is not as high as it used to be. Power level has been set at 50 watts. So far reception reports have been good. Please let us know where you receive
our repeaters using the instructions below.
Please pass along your signal reports on our repeaters using this form and print it, then either bring them to the club meeting on the first
Wednesday of the month or the breakfast meeting the last Wednesday of the month or mail it to the Androscoggin Amateur Radio Club
PO Box 1 Auburn, Maine 04212. Here is the link to the online form to submit signal reports for the two repeaters.
