Repeater Status Information

Update: 02-29-2012 - The ATV Repeater is back at McLaren and operating VERY well. Many thanks to all of the hard work of Al WB8YOB, Clay KF8UI, and Dale KC8ZXF in getting the ATV Repeater back on the air.

Update: 02-27-2012 - The Millington Remote Receiver has been taken offline. At that height and power, it could not be coordinated legally due to Line A. We have instead put the 440.650+ (100hz) Repeater back online at that location.

Update: 02-12-2012 - All of the ATV equipment is operational and waiting for us to get time to get it back to the rooftop.
We have secured an antenna for the 220.480 repeater. As soon as the snow clears from the rooftop, it will be back up.

Update: The ATV repeater PC powersupply failed. It has been replaced, but windows XP is corrupt. once it's it is repaired it will be reinstalled. The ATV Exciter has been repaired as well.
- Thanks AL!

UPDATE: 11/28/11 the ATV Repeater computer that provides the I.D image has suffered a CPU Fan Failure, the extent of the damage is currently unknown. The ATV repeater was shut off due to the Exciter being removed, it is currently unknown why the exciter is failing to produce enough drive for the amplifier. Stay tuned for updates.

the .26 DVR has been reprogrammed and is operating well.

We have removed the DVR Module from the .100 machine and put it into the .26.

We are having problems with the ATV repeater, however we have not had time to fully diagnose the problem. As soon as we know what it is, we will let you know.
