147.12 Back On But Not Linked
We have placed the 147.12 Bridgecomm Repeater on air at the Stone Castle on a temporary basis. At the moment there are some desense issues and it is not easily accessed. These issues ARE being worked out as we await the frequency coordinator's approval of our move to Usery Pass. Its audio quality is, as is to be expected out of new equipment, very good.
449.60 and EchoLink KB7KWK-L
Our repeaters are NOT linked at this time, and all club nets are on the 449.60 repeater, which is linked to KB7KWK-L EchoLink. This repeater is sounding very good as of the last-heard Wednesday night net.
We have signed the lease agreement for the Usery Pass co-location of our VHF and UHF repeaters. We are awaiting frequency coordination before we make the move to the mountain pass.
What to expect
We will have excellent coverage out of the Usery Pass site for Mesa and points west, also good coverage to the southeast down the Old West Highway portion of US 60 from Gold Canyon to Florence Junction, also along SR 79 down to Florence.
We will have poor coverage south to Queen Creek and to the east, but we can develop plans as money comes available to cover these areas from the Stone Castle, as one way around this issue.
We are working hard to pull this plan together.
