Here is an unsolicited mailing I received from Ray W. Retzlaff II,
I thought I would share it with you.
I thought I would send you a picture of my first repeater that I can honestly say would not be done today without your repeater builder list and website. I know it is not much to look at but it has been on the air for a little over a year now and after tracking down a few problems (like the sprinkler timer at the site that was putting a carrier right on my input) it is running absolutely perfect I was even told by the tech that takes care of the local club repeater that he wishes he could make the clubs repeater sound this good. It consists of a duplexed GE Mastr II mobile radio set, NHRC-10 controller, Wacom WP-639 duplexer, Astron RS-35-A power supply, Andrew 1/2" hardline, and a Hustler G6-144 antenna.
Thanks again for all the help you have been and thanks for creating a site and email list like you have. I can honestly say that I have learned more about electronics by building this project than you can imagine.
