Notes and Updates since last report

  1. Jan van der Vyver ZS1VDV and Mike Kellett ZS1TAF performed upgrades and maintenance work on the 145.675MHz repeater at Jonaskop on Saturday 6 February.

A new rackmount PSU and circulator were installed along with the controller and link radios. The fly lead between the duplexer and the heliax was replaced, the connection to the 4stack was serviced some water was dried out and the connection triplesealed. Initial reports indicate a significant improvement in the signal from the repeater. Further signal reports welcome.
