Information & Pictures of the 442.550 Repeater with 145.570 remote base.

The 145.570 remote base is the west end of the N7LXC simplex link to the Cle Elum area.

Please use 442.550 + with a PL tone of 103.5

Linked to 145.570 N7LXC Simplex Link PL 91.5

The 442.550 frequency is Coordinated to the Puget Sound RTTY Repeater Group.

"Club call WA7HJR"... Thus the WA7HJR/R call on the repeater..

Thanks to the WA7HJR group for the partnership with this repeater.

Thanks to the Adams Family

They provide the power & let us set the hut on their property at Sky Meadows. (East End of the system)

Thank you Bothell Health Care !

On 2/9/2011 N7NEW was given permission to install the repeater & link radio at Bothell Health Care.

We installed a garden shed on the north wall of their maintenance shed for the radio equipment and put the 

antenna on a mast along side of said shed on 4/17/2011.

Thanks to Frank Corwin KC7EBV for the loan of two sections of tower !

Later this summer we will move the Antenna  to the top of a Fir tree nearby. For present the ant will not be above the local trees.

The repeater finals are set at 40 watts.

It is putting 40 watts to the Ant after the duplexer.

We have a TX-RX Systems INC duplexer in place now instead of the Sinclair. Thanks to W7HNH & WA7HTJ for tuning.

We have taken out the 2 meter RF Concepts Amp and are running the Mitrek barefoot at 40 watts.

We have replaced the two Astron 30 Amp power supply's with a 50 Amp Astron.

Again, it is on the air for use at this time.
