UHF Repeater Update

Peter WA7FUS reported an issue hearing the UHF machine on Cady. I have no problem working it with a handheld, but with winter coming on it seemed like a good time to make a service call, so Ed and I went up the mountain.

After a quick physical inspection, we ran a couple of tests:

  • Output Power 30W, measured with service monitor
  • Antenna SWR < 1.5 at 443.450 and 448.450 from analyzer

So everything appears to be in order. We do need to top up the batteries soon.
