New 2m Repeater

Our third two metre repeater EI2MLR is currently on test from a temporary location near Tullogher in South Kilkenny. The frequency is 145.700 MHz -600KHz (Channel R4), the access tone is 103.5Hz. The set up is a Motorola MTR2000 radio into a collinear antenna at approx six metres with an output of 25 watts, the site height is approx 150m. It was planned to permanently locate this repeater on Mt. Leinster but unfortunately the problems at the site some years back that made the relocation of the original two metre repeater necessary still exist so it was decided to place it on test from South Kilkenny until an alternative site can be found. Reception reports can be emailed to sirnrepeaters at gmail.com.
