Shediac Bay Repeater back to full power!
We have done the necessary work to change the coax to 1/2" 50 ohms Heliax with an SWR reading of 1.2 The VE9SBR repeater is back to full power at 20 watts.
We also had an issue with the UHF Yagi for the link to VE9SHM. There was water leaking into the Yagi antenna and had water at the connection to the 1/2" 50 ohms Heliax. We changed the UHF Yagi for the link to VE9SHM and measured SWR of 1.4.
I would like to extend my thanks to the following amateurs who participated in the work being done:
Rod VE9HV was the man in the lift and doing most of the antenna work.
Ground crew was VE9CAM, VE9LEN, VE9JCT, VE9OSK, VE9MTV, VE9MWB and VE9WCL.
