147.240 Repeater Update: February 10, 2024
On Saturday February 10, 2024 members of the SVARA repeater group and friends embarked on a project to upgrade the network cabinet and clean up the installation of the Saginaw 147.24, and 6-meter repeaters and add the new 220 MHz repeater. The plan was to move from the two old cabinets that have been in place for many years to one larger cabinet. Led by Jeff KB8SWR, and repeater committee members Rick KC8VOA, Ron KC8YVF and Mike KD8MMH along with club members Fred KE8QCO and Tom N8EUI the group met at Rosien Towers at 8:30 am to begin the project. They were joined by Randy N8VDS from Flint and Paul KC8ELQ from Bay City.
A new (used) cabinet was acquired through a donation from a group in Detroit. Mike KD8MMH and Tom N8EUI drove down to Detroit on Friday February 9th to pick the new cabinet up.
Here is the work that was completed on Saturday
The work crew cleared the building at 9:30 pm
The cabinet houses the 147.240 SVARA repeater, the SVARA 220 MHz and the 6-meter repeater. The cabinet also includes the 2-meter and 220 MHz CANS.
