Newton 146.61- Update

We have finished moving Newton 146.61 into it’s new location, and it is back on K-Link.  The duplexer tuning was optimized, the receiver pre-amp was put back online and the transmitter power was turned up to 60 watts (was 30).  The increased sensitivity and power should allow better use of the repeater for mobiles in the Wichita area.

Many thanks to Russell (WX0RG), Chance (N5NIQ), Don (KG0HN) and Justin (NV8Q) for the labor installing the ice bridge and moving the equipment.  (See photos below)

A new ice bridge was installed to provide a sturdy cable entry path and to protect the cables.
