New Repeater - VK2RFG - C4FM

Post by VK2AZ » Thu Jul 06, 2017 8:01 pm

My spies tell me that there is a new repeater on the horizon?

VK2RFG
438.65/431.65
C4FM/FM

Were my spies correct?
When is the proposed implementation date?

Hi Hilary,

Thanks for taking an interest. Yes, your spies are quite correct, VK2RFG is due to be installed at Gregory Hills. We don't have a confirmed installation date yet, but the box is ready to go so we're just waiting to get site access.

73,

Thanks Peter,
I live in Glenmore Park and it is almost impossible for me to access the other C4FM repeaters in Sydney.

I have a Yeasu FTM-100D already programmed, and hopefully the new repeater will be a good strength here.

Good luck with the repeater and also the new website and forum.

Excellent! There are also a couple of our club members with FTM-100's and also FT2DR's, and we're all keen to get this repeater on-air. Will be great to hear you on there.

Hi Hilary, I thought mention should be made that in FM mode, there will be a 91.5hz tone squelch
So to recap,
Repeater Tx 438.650Mhz
Rx 431.650Mhz (-7Mhz split_
91.5hz tone squelch.(Analogue modes)
73,
Doug

Not quite. We actually went to the site this morning to do the install, but couldn't get into the cabin as we had the wrong key.

Won't be long.

I can hear the repeater but it is VERY weak, and it can't hear me on either analogue or digital from Glenmore Park with 50watts.

Very sad... :cry:
