TK5ZCG vignetteOur local UHF repeater TK5ZCG is now linked on out TKNet network. This repeater has been rebuild and uses now 2 commercial mobile radio PRM830 and a Kathrein duplexer, all retuned into the 70cm band.

The UHF repeater has been connected on TKNet on dec 6th 2016. The first tests are quite promising, but it seems that the antenna does not tilt down enough to cover the Ajaccio bay in good conditions. Both this repeater and the VHF repeater TK5ZCF are now linked through TKNEt and to Echolink (TK5KP-R)

Both repeaters need a CTSS of 88.5 Hz and are also transmitting the same CTCSS, so you can avoid local noise.

Here is a simulation of the coverage of TK5ZCG UHF repeater.
