This is a closeup of the MSR 2000 repeater itself. The BSI shelf located below the repeater contains the RC210 controller.


2008.Jul.15: The new VE3ERX is now installed, the old ERX (145.15-) has been taken out of service and is being rebuilt for installation in another location.

2006.Feb.09: The antenna and feedline replacement is now complete. Hopefully we will get an idea fairly quickly if the repair has helped with the interference problems. If you have any coverage feedback please send it to me: va3pc at ciinet dot org or use the contact form on this site.
