Southern California News



Santiago Peak 2.4 GHz Update

This is from what I have seen and heard on the repeater:


^ Late last Saturday afternoon Mike, WA6SVT went to 

Santiago to service the repeater.


He found that the 2.4 GHz input problem seems to be

in the transmission line at the top of the tower some where

between the hard-line/preamp/jumper to the antenna.

It was announced that there is a connector that has corroded

because of water migration over the past 15 years and

needs to be replaced.


It seems that it will require two workers on the tower and

one person on the ground to accomplish the job so it

will take some time to coordinate the personal for a

"Tower Party" to make the necessary repairs.


About two or three years ago a new 2.4 GHz antenna

was purchased for Santiago to replace the old one

which was falling apart from the years and weather. 

The new antenna was a special antenna with down-tilt

that was expected to improve the 2.4 GHz input.

When it was installed I didn't see anything that would

be considered an improvement.In fact that is when I

noticed that Don's (KE6BXT) signal go weak and just

in the last few months he brought his picture back to

a P5.


The one good thing that might come out of the final

breakdown of the 2.4 GHz input is that we may see

a dramatic improvement of the 2.4 GHz input when the

repairs are made.


While Mike was at the repeater he also installed a new

5 GHz transmitter. But the new transmitter had a problem

with transmitting audio. And was explained by one of

the control operators that he, "Jury Rigged", the audio

from the old transmitter for the time being. Mike had problems

with this new transmitter when he first installed it back in March

of 2009 and pulled it back out and put the old one back

in operation.


Also Mike had someone turn there antenna toward the Snow

Peak repeater and key-up the 2.4 GHz input. Snow Peak

has had a problem with it's audio being received on Santiago

Peak. The problem was still there and worse than ever but

the picture wasn't bad at all.


^ On Thursday Mike went to the Santiago Peak repeater again

with Don, KE6BXT and another person. I am not sure but I think

his call was W6TBS or W6TBX. Mike was the only one to

climb the tower and the other two were his ground crew.


Mike made the repairs to the transmission line and restored

the 2.4 GHz input at 2:40 PM.


I watched Mike do his thing on the tower via the "Tower Cam"

as well as on the web site. The web

site covers many of the mountain tops so you might want to

check it out.


After Mike was finished and left the repeater site one of the

ATVers on Santiago was tuning up his transmitter and

commented that his picture was much darker than before

the problem accrued.


I noticed that the picture from the San Bernardino Microwave

Society Meeting later that evening and it was very dark. And later

AC6RB, George came on and his picture was much darker.

And around 10:15 PM I saw Don, KE6BXT again but this time

from his QTH station, and he said that his picture was very dark

on his receive and asked a control operator for a signal report.

The control operator reported he was very dark but Mike had told

him that he needs to adjust his video deviation to improve his signal

so Don might have to do the same. I heard Mike talking

later and he told the control operator that he needs the

adjust the video deviation on his camera and the "darkness"

on Santiago isn't from the work he did on the 2.4 GHz receive. 


I sure hope that everyone doesn't have to adjust their cameras. 


^ Amiga May Go Away

I overheard Mike talking about getting rid of the old "Amiga"

computer on the Santiago Peak repeater that is used to

display screens for the I.D.s.


The computer is very old and Mike is considering one of the

photo units that are used for slide shows to display pictures

you take with your digital cameras to replace the "Amiga". 


^ ATN-CA Repeater Report





Repairs Needed for the ATN-CA Repeaters

1. Establish link from Mt. Potosi
Mt. Wilson:
Oat Mtn.:
1. Replace plastic wire ties with appropriate fasteners.
2. Tune 2.4 GHz link dipole for better SWR. It would be a

    good idea to sweep the 1200 MHz antenna at the same

    time as well.
Santiago Peak:
1. Remove KC6UQH's call and Palomar from the W6ATN

    repeaters ID's (late spring early summer 08 when the new controller is installed)
2. Look into weak signal getting into one of the inputs.

3. Find intermittent receive problem for link from Oat Mtn..(1/24/09)

4. Resolve problems with WiFi getting into receiver for Snow Peak

    & Point Loma (April 28, 2009)

5. Install new 5 GHz transmitter once it is repaired (3/10/09)

Snow Peak:

1. 2.4 Ghz input is operational but has audio problems due to

    receiver problems on the network hub.. July 23, 2009

2. The 1200 MHz output does work and you can watch.

Point Loma, W6RDF: No Repairs Needed/Fully Operational

   Trustee Robert Swain, KA4JSR

1. Off the air do to AC problems at the shack.
