The 6m repeater has been experiencing a hum on the receiver for quite a while.  The cause, so far, has eluded us but we were reluctant to take it off the air completely.

A pair of Motorola CDM750 mobile radios in the correct band were made available to us so these were tuned up on the repeater pair and an interfacing cable and mounting tray were fabricated after Christmas.  The first try at installing the "NEW" repeater did not work as the signals coming out of the radios did not match the older unit.  A solution was found and implemented and the "NEW" repeater went on the air today, March 16, 2020.  VE3ODR was the first to check it out from Washago.  If you have equipment for 6m FM try it out and give us some feedback.
