The Texas VHF-
We want to populate this page with photos of your repeater systems -
In days gone by.... what we are asking for would have been called a "brag tape". But this being Texas do we we really need to have a reason to brag ?
Please look through your file of photos and/or take some new ones. Can you ever have
enough photos of your repeater ? You never know... your photos might just be the
spark for the next great idea for some other member.
Please send your photos (in electronic form) to email@example.com.
We all look forward to seeing images of your successful repeater projects.

The Austin Amateur Radio Club is having to move its antennas and repeater equipment. The old KLRU tower is coming down and the new one is about 150 feet away. We should be up and running on the newer tower and in the new building after Thanksgiving.
The mostly cleared out rack will be the new home for club radios. Antennas will be at about 420 feet AGL fed with 1 5/8 Heliax.
The 146.94, 224.80, and 444.1 repeaters will be at this new site. The 444.1 repeater will probably use this location as a receive and transmit location with remote receiver in another location in North Austin. We hope to use this new facility as a hub to support Central Texas club repeaters with remote receive facilities.

The site is 100% solar and wind powered. The output of all the repeaters is 25 watts into the duplexers. There is coverage over the whole country of Belize. If a hurricane is due to strike, two techs are moved to the site, the solar and wind power systems are stored, and the generators are fired up until no longer needed. They have food, water, fuel, and such for two people and all systems for roughly 30 days. I work primarily with Motorola Quantar repeaters, but we are moving over to Tait systems now and it should prove to be interesting.
