88 Sellersville: WB3BJE/R has been up and running since the beginning of April 2003. The temporary package is a Motorola Radius repeater running with no hang time. On Tuesday, October 7, 2003 the new GE MASTR II package was put into operation along with the NHRC Repeater Controller and it's accessories.The package is running 50 watts (by design) has a sensitivity of approximately .12uV. The time-out timer is 30 seconds (default) and there are three ID's programmed......initial, regular and CW. There is still work to be done including a different antenna, different physical location and some programming on the controller. We plan to install the unit along with it's backup package and duplexer in a Motorola outdoor, weather-proof, cabinet.
