I took the 49.83/88.3 MHz repeater itself outside and walked
away from the house. My son came with me,
holding an FM radio to listen to the repeated signal.
Again, the signal sounded good through the FM BCB
radio until we encountered interference, (about
500 feet away) so we
turned around and went back home. The repeater worked fine on batteries. (Not enough solar cells to power the unit yet.)
This is with the 49 MHz transmitting antenna still on
the first floor of the house just lying next to
the station turntable. Imagine if the transmitting
antenna was on the roof of the house.
Well, that’s another piece of this fun little project
