Williamstown Repeater Site Cleanup

The Williamstown Repeater site work detail was a success. We had a nice group of hams who helped provide cleanup and maintenance around the site. Overall, it was a pleasant day and we got quite a bit accomplished. Special thanks to the following folks who attended:

While we were at the site, we also dialed in some audio levels on the link system so things should be sounding more symmetrical audio-wise. I also added a dual courtesy tone to Williamstown. A single “boop” indicates that the last transmission was from the local Williamstown receiver, and a double “boop boop” indicates the last transmission was from our link system. Please wait for the beep before transmitting. If you don’t wan’t to hear any tones, morse code IDs or repeater tail, enable CTCSS DECODE on your radio, the tone is 100hz.

Williamstown Repeater

The Williamstown repeater saw some improvement today with the addition of a new preamp, preselector and a small bump in transmitter power. Although some final adjustments still need to be made, the repeater is now “keyable” with a 5 watt radio in Plattsburgh, NY, and should play well throughout central Vermont. Please give it a try and I welcome your feedback.
