Grizzly Mountain Repeater



The original Grizzly Mountain repeater was destroyed by a massive lightning strike several years ago. The current machine was replaced by a private party, and is now operated by the Ochoco Amateur Radio Association.

The repeater is a commercial Yaesu VXR-7000, featuring CW ID'er and the standard features such as an alligator, remote control, etc. The transmitter runs approximately 50 watts output.

The antenna is a double folded dipole up 80 feet on a shared tower; the antenna produces approximately 2.6 dB of gain. Allowing for duplexer and feedline losses, this provides an ERP of just over 30 watts in an omnidirectional coverage pattern.

Power is provided by a bank of wet lead-acid batteries, floated on a switching power supply.
