Spring Cleaning & Tune Up Day - 2013

Sorry I have not posted here in a long while.

Some of the BYRG tech crew will have a work day on Thursday, April 11, 2013.

We hope to make several site visits to have "Spring Cleaning & Tune Up" on some of the BYRG
network sites. Such as the one shown below.

WBØYRG  442.550 Repeater Downtown Kansas City Mo

Also we will attempt to gain access to the site where a CERT repeater has a power supply
issue and get it going for another sister organization. We try and help out where and when we can.

You see the BYRG tech crew works on all kinds of things for us and other ham clubs.
We share our technical staff since some clubs & organizations don't always have the technical expertise or test equipment that we have, so we share our vast knowledge of this stuff in hoping we can get some younger fellows involved & interested in doing what we have done for the last 30 or so years.

Here is a few pictures of some of our repeater sites and gear that we have worked on over the years..

Yea, we do all kinds of repeaters and modes.
Analog, Digital, VHF, UHF, Microwave you name it we have probably done it!

The above tower was at the Dayton Hamvention for several years in a row. Yes, our group set that monster
up and had it hooked up to the iCom Main Display Booth inside the Hamvention Arena so folks could try out the latest Icom HF gear..
