The previous 443.775+ UHF VE7BDY repeater located locally in Nelson has been switched over to 147.040+ for a trial period.
NOTE: This is a local Nelson repeater, so it may not have coverage past the local Nelson area.
It is running 20 watts in Nelson city area.
If you are located in Nelson, could you give it a try please and let me know how it is working.
It should cover the whole area of Nelson city and surrounding mountains.
It covers out as far as Taghum, and parts of the North Shore.
NOTE: There is a 100 Hz tone on the input to the repeater.
147.060 + 600 KHz. offset. 100 HZ PL tone.
There appears to be some local noise and/or interference that was occasionally causing the repeater to key up, so I added the input tone of 100 Hz.
Will try this for a week or so, and see how it is working.
