Superstition ARC Repeater Notes!

[ News From The Tech Committee ]

A ton of work has gone into the repeaters recently. A huge thank you goes out to all who have helped, no matter the amount of time or effort expended. Here are some of the things recently completed:
1. All duplexers have been tuned up.
2. Speaker level to mic level attenuators installed between repeaters and link radios.
2. Repeater audio has been dialed in.
3. 448.275 (negative offset 100.0 pl tone) repeater is back on Usery and open for use.
4. Improved heat transfer modifications made between the PA and heat sink in all repeaters.
5. Thermal cut out switches installed on All repeaters.
6. High flow fans installed on the Stone Castle machine.

A note on the thermal cutouts, if activates, only the transmitter in that machine is disabled. This means the receiver and controller are still working. When the thermal cutout activates, the repeater will still RX and key up the link radio, and the other repeater will carry your traffic, but there will be NO TX from the repeater that is in cool down. Once the heat sink cools down, the transmitter will automatically re-enable. While the repeaters are running on the internal controllers, the repeater ID will cover up all audio.

Work still left to do:
1. Air Conditioned equipment cabinet at Stone Castle. This involves completely re-racking and re-wiring everything.
2. New power supply at Stone Castle.
3. Replace fan on link radio at Stone Castle.
4. Upgrade grounding at Usery.
5. Re-connect all repeaters to the Arcom controllers. This will require all audio levels to be adjusted again.

A huge thank you goes out to everyone on the Tech Committee, and the others who have helped with all the work done on the repeaters.

Thanks Again,
Tech Committee Chairman

Report Repeater Problems:

[ Important Repeater Link Usage and Information ]

This is a semi-duplex and requires the calling station to key up and pause for a second or two before making your transmission. This will give the system the necessary time to open up the link between the 147.120 and the 449.600 Repeaters. Also before keying up please wait for the links to drop other wise the stays open and you will not be heard on both repeaters.
