The Minuteman Repeater Association’s 146.820 repeater in Brookline has been taken off the air, reports MMRA President Bob Dematia, K1IW.
“Ongoing problems with intermod has forced us to remove this repeater from service and bring it back to the shop for additional work.” As part of the refurbishment “the system will be getting a new link radio and will have the various cavities and filters in the transmission system re-tuned and/or replaced.”
Dematia adds, “to increase accessibility, the ’82 machine will soon be placed back in service at the old Marlborough East site. We will give it a good work out here before putting it back in Brookline.”
