System Upgrade Interference

Since last weekend’s system upgrade, you may have noticed interference on the repeater system from Mexican taxi drivers. We believe we have narrowed down the interference to the 70cm link radio at Alamo Peak. Plans are in work to reprogram the link radios on the system this weekend to eliminate the interference.

Users of the James or Weed repeaters may also notice significant receive audio degradation from users entering the system from Alamo Peak. We believe this is due to the last minute substitution of an out-of-band link radio at James Ridge after discovering the primary link radio had experienced catastrophic failure in the PA circuit. A replacement radio is on order and the planned site visits this weekend to reprogram the link radios will also include replacing the under-performing link radio on the Alamo-James link, provided the replacement radio arrives in time.

Please note any other performance or audio issues you experience with the upgraded system and notify me via email.
