Williamsport 675 WQGU515
Welcome to the WQGU515 Williamsport 675 GMRS Repeater
9/17/12, the repeater was put on the air on Bald Eagle mountain just south of Williamsport.
The repeater is 2 - Motorola GM-300 mobile radios hooked together (same type of thing as a GR-300) using Mobile Duplexers (not two antennas). The RF output power is 6 watts with only 3 watts after the duplexer.
Powered by an Astron 20 amp power supply.
Currently using an FG4500 Antenex Laird UHF Fiberglass Omnidirectional Antenna - Unity Gain mounted on the northwest side of the tower. (A Diamond X50C2 commercial version of the Diamond X50A is on order and when the weather permits, will be installed.) This antenna has 7.2 DB on UHF so should see a difference compared to no gain currently.
1/2 inch hardline is being used.
The repeater is located on Skyline Drive/Bald Eagle Mountain just south of Williamsport, PA at 1912 feet elevation.
The other repeaters at this site are
KB3HLL's 147.090 and 443.050
KB3AWQ's 444.900 and N3NXC-2 APRS digi 144.390 (which these two share the same antenna Diamond X50A Dual Band)
Any other questions etc send to GMRS@KB3AWQ.com
Even though this is an open repeater, If you are able to send me something just to know the repeater is being used or any comments or questions or just the experience you had or the coverage as I am not sure of its entire coverage myself I would appreciate.
