146.76 MHz repeater gets new duplexer, firmware

Paul Prestia, KA3OPZ reports that he and Steve Nardin, W9SAN have installed a replacement duplexer on the FWRC 146.76 MHz repeater.

This allowed the crew to reconnect the repeater to the highest available antenna and reactivate the repeater's external amplifier. Paul reported that some changes to connectors, etc. remain necessary, a task that he expects to perform soon.

In addition, Paul reported that he has updated the firmware in the controllers for the 146.76 MHz and 444.875 MHz repeaters. He changed the Morse code ID on both to W9TE/R. He also enabled transmit audio per-emphasis, which improved the transmission of high audio frequencies.
