Radio in the Woods

I’ve not been posting as much as I’d like to, I’ve got quite a few good articles in draft and have been trying to focus every last moment of warm weather on things that need to be done.

One of my recent projects was a rebuild of a camp repeater system at the base of this. There was so much preparing and learning that went into doing a repeater rebuild, in the woods, completely self-supported; as in running the soldering iron off my truck’s inverter. The most significant improvement was also the least expensive, and was simply cutting and soldering a proper internal feedline harness with cut-to-length quality cable and proper solder-on connectors. That made the difference between a 31 signal and a 59 signal… but more on that later.

Make your days count and do something wonderful.
