Repeater repairs and upgrades

The 224.580 repeater had been repaired, and is back online. The power amp failed finally, and was somewhat repaired to get it back online. Three of the 5 FETS are dead, so those circuits were removed and bypassed. The amp is putting 20 watts to the feedline, better than the 1.5 watts from the excitet.

The upgrade is to the audio. Since this repeaterhasd been on the air, I’ve never been happy with the quality of the audio. I’ve finally reworked it, and it sounds great! We are now passing “flat” audio thru the system. Give it a try and let me know how it sounds.

Work continues on the next 220 repeater.I’m hoping to have it somewhat on the air for testing soon…
