Items supplied with basic repeater:
This is a conversion of a mobile radio to repeater. The lock
is removed and the receiver RF connection takes the place of it.
A length of heavy duty #10 siamese wire (red/black) is supplied for
the power cord. A variety of interface options (DB-9, plain old wire
tail, barrier terminal block) are available for connecting an outboard
controller. This repeater can also be build to include a NHRC internal
controller. The addition of a NHRC/M2 controller makes a really nice
package as everything is built internally and the repeater basically becomes
'plug-n'play'. No duplexer is supplied.
The repeater will require a 20 amp Linear Power supply or equivalent
just to run the repeater. If an add on RF Power Amp is going to be
used, please allow for the additional current consumption accordingly.
Astron's are good because of their over-voltage protection. We don't
recommend switching supplies on repeaters.
We use an IFR-1200 A Service Monitor and Cushman CE-15 Spectrum Analyzer
in verifying performance on our conversions. We have the manual on
the PLL MASTR II exciter, so we can supply the data on that transmitter.
We choose to use the Japanese power brick for the transmitter PA because
it is simply too hard to convert the high-band PA to 220 and have repeatable
performance, efficiency, and purity specifications. The 25 watt brick
is rated continuous duty at this power level.
The information in these sites would be used to convert the radio to
