Saddleback Mountain is located in Rockingham County, in the Town
of Deerfield, New Hampshire. This is the location of New Hampshire
Public Television's Channel-11, Main Transmitters. From the Office
window of building, you can see the Isle of Shoals.
You can also see the Seabrook nuclear plant. (The local saying at
the Mountain is "When she glows, we goes").
So far so good in that area!!!!
The Repeater equipment consists of an Icom RP-3010
UHF repeater driving an outboard Power Amp. The repeater is putting
out about 50 watts.
We then feed a set of Wacom Duplexers, about 400 feet of Andrews
7/8 Heliax to the Celwave Super StationMaster Fiberglass antenna
which is mounted about 350' up the Main tower.
As of August 10th, 1999, I replaced the former controller with
an S-Com 5K, which was removed from the UHF Keene Machine when the
7K went on-line there. The new controller will give the repeater a
new sound and tons more flexability in addition to remote control
which I've never had on it until now. (Shhhhhh).......
