This site will soon host the new Yaesu System Fusion repeater featuring mixed mode operation (analog/digital). We will be running this at 20 watts and it should have an excellent footprint due to the lofty height at this location. It should reach out just as far - or farther - than the current "519" machine. The timeframe for changover is late summer 2015 (after some "bench testing").
This machine was a Kendecom VHF repeater, co-located with VA3KCR at the CKSY-FM transmitting plant. It serves as a backup 2m repeater for the club. VE3COZ features a basic controller that identifies in CW only. It transmits on 145.190 MHz with a negative offset and no PL. Emergency power is available to this repeater
Its receive antenna is a 2 bay Sinclair at 495' AGL, and a Diamond X-500 at 360' AGL handles the transmit signal.
