N8IG Repeater update

The N8IG Marysville Repeater is without its Controller for a few more weeks, but is still operational. However, it is on the local on-site receiver and antenna, not the Remote Water Tower (high) Receiver site. There will be no courtesy tones or announcements for this duration. The receive range may be a bit shorter for the time being, but the N8IG Repeater remains operational.

The N8IG Repeater was replaced with a new Kenwood NXR-710K repeater setup in analog mode. The repeater was purchased by the Union County EMA and put into service on March 10, 2019.

The old repeater, a  GE MASTR II Repeater was donated by Honda Americas to the Union County EMA has served the amateur radio operators of Union County well over the years. It was taken out of service when the new Kenwood repeater was put online.  

Our oldie-but-goodie Controller, receive link radios, and voter still need to be setup on the new Repeater. After this is completed, the remote receive site will be operational.
These will also be put up on the new EMA Tower when it goes up.

Below are some photos of the repeater equipment. (click on Read More to see the photos)
