The repeater is based on Tait PMR¬ modules for 12.5kHz channel spacing with +/-2.5kHz deviation for
TX and RX. The repeater uses a duplexer built using surplus cavities retuned to 70cm by Jan Makkinje, M1DBL. This feeds a J Beam 7047 4 stack colinear via W103 and LDF5-50 Heliax. The antenna is configured for directional operation with a south west pattern to put the main lobe down the Furness Peninsular with the half power points at Kirkby Lonsdale to the south east and Ambleside to the north west. The repeater antenna has a directional ERP of +11.8dBW/15W
Repeater control is via a Hozlogic control system identical to GB3LD with a custom programmed PIC. This provides repeater TX CTCSS timing sequence to control a remote Internet gateway provided by Dave, G6CRV at Heysham which allows IRLP and Echolink to be used via the repeater.
