We are setting up an on campus repeater! This is exciting news because that means that all licensed ham radio students can more actively use their handheld radios to talk to each other–all over campus!
We got the repeater donated from cal poly’s amateur radio club. As of now the repeater is transmitting great with the duplexer filtering out the repeat and transmit frequency since they are close together and the repeater doesn’t want those frequencies to interact (check antenna analyzer diagram) but we still need to work out issues with receiving signals from the handhelds.
Thank you to everyone who came and helped out! Hopefully you were able to learn a thing or two about troubleshooting and antenna analyzing.
