The 4m port on the Mt. Leinster repeater (70.400Mhz) was returned to service today after been off air for maintenance and upgrade. This unit allows users to uplink to the repeater network on 4m and is pictured here in it's new enclosure. It has an output of 10 watts into a folded dipole antenna.

Reports welcome to:
EI2DBR 145.650MHz at Devil's Bit which has been operating on a temporary antenna for the past week to pinpoint the source of recent interference is back to it's usual antenna. The temporary antenna which was lower on the tower and stood off in a Southerly direction would have optimised the coverge to the South and reduced coverage to the North as per the signal reports recently received so normal service should now be resumed.

Thanks to those who sent in reports to
