Depending on operating mode)
peak. Two miles west of Oakhurst and northwest of highway 41.
MODES: Repeater I.D. W6WGZ/R will add A,B,C,or D depending on
meter and 440 repeater interconnected,
that is, input into either receiver will output
on both transmitters.
repeater operates independently of each
other as if they were entirely separate.
+ 146.2 PL at all times. 0.1 micro volt sensitivity at duplexer
terminal. +- 5 Khz audio deviation.
1 Khz carrier tolerance.
441.175 Khz +- 1ppm. Transmitter encodes PL if receiver input is on
441.175 , it does not encode PL if input is on 2 meters (A mode) Output
15 watts to the antenna (after duplexer) +- 5 Khz audio deviation. PL encode 300 Hz deviation.
ANTENNA: Omni directional
but side mounted on a metal tower (south side) causing a pattern dimple
toward north. 6dbd gain. ERP about 55 watts. Antenna base is 30 ft.
above ground. It is a commercial antenna consisting of eight collinear
dipoles in a 10 ft. fiberglass tube.
FEED CABLE: 60
ft. 1/2" copper hard-line
operates from a nominal 12 volt (13.6 v operating) battery of 250 amp
hours maintained by a 25 amp regulated charger. This battery is shared
with the two meter repeater. Receive current drain 110 ma. Transmit
drain 5.0 amps.
Repeater identifies W6WGZ/R (x) every
during a conversation. It waits until the end of
transmission to identify.
(x) is the
operating mode as above.
The timer allows five minutes without a break. It then turns the
transmitter off without warning.
The MCARC is a member of the Northern Amateur Relay Council of California
and the repeater frequencies have been coordinated and sanctioned by that
repeater, coupled with the 147.180 repeater, is owned and operated by
the Madera County Amateur Radio Club.
