well the reapteer has been on the air

I need a duplexer or to get another antenna up high for 2m but since the phones were out today I put it ont e air and asked a few friends to listen if my dad used the reverse autopatch to get on the air (one of the reason for the repeater

dad did put out a call when the phone co came fixed the line and dad was not are to reconect the main lines we win Iron visting my wifes aunt and her brother my father in law since my dad and her aunt do NOT get along I could not take so I left with with a system that he could use. a local ham friend answered dad and drop by and read my nopte of the phones and recencted them for my dad checked to make sure the phone

BTW since the reverse autopatch puts a ringing on the repeater with my id when a ham hit the right tone to bring up this system they become the host of my father as third party traffic.

yea I am still working on this project

the second of the antennas should go up tomarrow with the rebuilt hf mast then expereiment to get the egar I intend to use on the air can realy begin

what is the purpose of the repeater? well one of the function I am looking forward to is that it will have an "autopatch not intot eh comercail phone line althought I hope to enable a line version allowing me to choose that as an option) but into the internal house phone system so the old man can be called by me anytime I want, and since the autopatch allow reverse autopatch on a code the code 911 coming on the house from dad emergency necklace device will allow him access to the air waves any time that he deems an emergency exists (like a fall) he can get on the air and call for help either to msyelf or other ham friends in the area that are willing to help me out by lsitening for dad when I ask them too and either get ahold of us or the authorties or just show up and help him themselves I have been working on peices of it for some time and life has interfered but I hope the have the system on the air by maybe Feild day
