While I was able to see the VE4VJ/VE4WPG site up close and personal on a previous visit on the roof, I had not been in the machine room where the RF gear is located – except for this last Sunday where I accompanied Yuri VE4ACX, Dick VE4HK to the Richardson building at Portage & Main in Winnipeg.
I didn’t realize the close quarters that the gear is setup in — mind you, we don’t need alot of room to host the RF gear.
The UHF repeater VE4VJ is being taken out of service to tune up the RF & audio. Also – the two link radios are being brought in for Yuri to tune as well — almost like getting the oil replaced in your car – just not as often 🙂
It will be back on the air in a week or so after Yuri does his magic … it’s a great repeater and site.
