Antenna work set

On Saturday June 17th a work party is scheduled to happen. At that time the current south antenna will be moved to another leg of the tower and will become the north antenna. The current north antenna will come down and will be tested to see what is exactly wrong with it. Also with the antenna move it is planned to replace the hardline with new. A lot will be going on that day. If you would like to help you can give Jeremy KC7VCG a call on the repeater or send him an email kc7vcg@47repeater.com or you may send a note via the webpage. It will take several people on the ground plus those on the tower to accomplish this move.

Tacoma Trail Cruisers Smuggler’s Run

The Tacoma Trail Cruisers will be using the repeater to coordinate and pass rider safety information during their annual Smuggler’s Run in the Capital Forest.  Motorcycle riders use trails within the Capital Forest to reach check-points on the way to the final destination. The Smuggler’s Run is scheduled for July 29th and July 30th during the hours of 8:00 am through 4:00 pm each day.  The repeater will remain open to all licensed users throughout the event.
As always, emergency message traffic from any station at any time has priority.

The Tacoma Trail Cruisers are looking for volunteer FCC licensed Amateur Radio Operators to help officiate the Smugglers Run at trail check-points. Contact Dan Burgess at (253) 318-7162 for more information.

4/28/2017 Hill Trip

There was a trip up the hill today to try and trouble shoot the antenna and feedline issues and adjust the audio levels threw out the system.
We found a few different issues with the antennas and feedlines. We corrected and repaired what we could with the time and materials we had on hand but the repeaters board will be discussing the options to correct the problems permanently.
The audio issues brought more problems then expected, as of now EchoLink is off the air and the Evergreen intertie is not accessible from our repeater but the north-south trunk is still working threw our site. Because of the complexity of our system there are numerous adjustments that need to be done to make everything work together. We just ran out of time and will complete the adjustments in the near future.
Sorry for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

Also the APRS digipeater is back on the hill and working properly on 440.800 MHZ.
