443.950 Final Build

The 443.950 has been installed inside the Motorola cabinet provided by WB4IVB.  Air flow throughout the cabinet is good and, more importantly, the rear cabinet door now closes after moving the rails all the way to the front.  I don’t want this to become a playground for mice in the winter months!

The receiver/exciter/amplifier consists of a GE Mastr II Exec conversion done by WB4IVB.  The sensitivity on receive is very good and the amp is pushing 30 Watts into the duplexers.  The duplexers are 250 watt capable DB Products surplus and the controller is a CAT 700.  The 3 remote bases consist of 3 Kenwood monobanders of late 80’s vintage driven by a Doug Hall Remote Base Interface.

My goal is to find a decent site with a secure building to house the repeater.

It takes good ears to hear the weak ones!
