During the last few weeks users may have experienced crackling whilst using the Mt. Leinster 70cm repeater on 430.950 MHz. We suspect this was caused by an antenna problem so last Saturday (4/5/19) we visited the site and changed the antenna from a collinear to a four stack dipole array. The weather conditions on the day turned out to be ideal for the job which was completed in a short time and seems to have sorted the problem.
A new MMDVM digital repeater is now on test from Mt. Leinster in Co. Carlow.
Callsign is EI7MLD,
Shift +9MHz (DVU-R24),
DMR colour code 1.
Output power is 30 watts into a CATC440 antenna.
It is currently running DMR, Fusion, DStar and
(To use analog mode set TX and RX tone to 103.5Hz)
