442.225 Repeater Work

Here is an example of a very hot day working on top of a tower installing antennas.

The 442.225 repeater uses a Decibel Products DB-410, fed with 7/8 inch heliax transmission line.

The height is approximately 150 feet above the ground.
The YL NTX Weekly Net meets weekly on Mondays at 8pm. The main repeater is 442.325 (127.3 tone). If you are in Fort Worth and have trouble reaching the main repeater please try the 442.225 (110 tone.) Both repeaters have a positive offset.
