The first major upgrade to the Two Wells Fargo stations are set for this Sunday.
This will be our third visit and we look to remove the old repeaters, cabinets, and power supplies.
We will install the existing duplexers into a new 4-post rack along with a 50amp power supply, network switch, and network controlled power distribution unit.
(Donated by KT4TAC) THANK YOU TOM!!!
The W4WBT D-Star repeater has arrived and it will also be installed with the intention of ruining it at 25w of Digital.
The ICOM repeater was purchased with funds from the membership drive and a large donation by our president KE6QEY. THANK YOU TED!
There will be room in the rack for the (on the way) WB4ETF Fusion repeater (Also donated by KT4TAC) as well as two future amplifiers. (Still to be funded)
Additionally, we will be removing an unused 12′, commercial antenna from our second mount and replacing it with a 8′, base antenna.
This will give each repeater its own base antenna and pave the way for an easy swap when the two new 12′, commercial antennas arrive.
The antennas will be ordered as soon as Ronnie’s Chicken Mini-Thon pledges are all collected.
If you still have a Pledge to make for the 28 chicken minis Ronnie ate, or any pledge at all, it can be made here. —> Donate
