Color on signals other
than the ATV repeater ID now appears on repeater output that is
streamed to the BATC website. A color chorma device is
being used to boost as necessary. Once further testing is
completed, the device will be moved to the Towson ATV repeater site for
deployment on all transmitted video from that site.
Efforts are underway to
link multi-state area repeaters by a 5 ghz. network of relay points.
This project includes CATS Towson, MD along with York, PA;
Wilmington, DE, and Philadelphia, PA. Equipment has been
allocated and site visits are planned for installation of the necessary
Our Towson site will be our gateway into this network. Our
in-process plans for linking our Towson and Laurel sites continue.
First near future expectation is for an Internet presentation of
video from the Laurel site, to the British Amateur Television Club
website (BATC). This is the same process currently in place for our
Towson ATV repeater output. Passing of those Laurel signals into
the Towson ATV repeater itself will follow at a later date. Kudos
to the Mid-Atlantic DATV group for inviting us into this
repeater linking venture!
