VE3NRS Repeater Damaged By Ice Storm
The ice storm has caused some damage to VE3NRS.
For those of you who are not aware, VE3NRS is a voting repeater. It listens at both E.L. Crossly in Fonthilll and in Thorold. It decides the best audio from both so that is what you hear. One of the received signals is sent to the tx site via a cross-band repeater. It listens to 147.840 and links it via uhf to Thorold.
The ice build up was so severe in Fonthill, the yagi detuned dramatically causing some damage to the cross-band repeater. It also seems that one of the voters has become intermittent. The 28 volt inverter power supply for the voter portion of the repeater failed.
VE3NRS is now up and running.
