This machine is 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.
We are currently exploring the possibility of adding IRLP and Echolink to the VE3COZ repeater as a supplement to our simplex nodes.
