Repeater Woes
#1
Just had a text conversation with K7TVL (about 17:30 local 6/24/13) and he said he would try to look at the repeater system this weekend. Poor guy.

Anyway, let's plan to use 146.72 until then if that works for you folks. PL tone is 100hz, standard offset.

PS: I will only be on sporadically until Wednesday (I took a couple days off this week), but will monitor 146.72 from home and whenever I am mobile.

Thanks for the update, Jim! Good to know it wasn't just me!

When Marys Peak is down, I usually hang out on Buck (444.825+ PL 123), just because it covers everywhere in Albany that I go on any regular basis.

Here is the text of the email Chris sent out at 8:46 PM about this:

Quote:It is with utmost curiosity that I report to you that Marys Peak went off the air sometime Sunday night. It is unknown to me what the problem could be, unfortunately I'm rebuilding a 911 center and will not be back in town until this weekend.

Because the link radios are also affected it could only be one of three things, power supply, system controller or voting selector all of which are brand-new with the last 60 days

More to come this weekend

Good to know. I'll monitor 146.720 as well and also Buck. Unfortunately with the link hub down Coburg will not link up with Buck.

The 145.130- repeater system is back online. Links are linked and PLLs are locked!

Apparently we fried a 70 amp 12 volt power supply. Rated at 55 amps continuous and we were only pushing 52. So, we're now back on the 100 amp switching power supply.
Thanks to the Chrises (Chrisi? Multiple different people with the name Chris) for getting things back up and running!
