Update on ATV link to Arizona


Many years ago Matt Krick of Golden Valley

AZ - outside of Kingman - was talking about

building a link from Las Vegas to Phoenix.

If I recall correctly he gave up the idea

because he could not find a site in the

Hualapai Mountains overlooking Kingman AZ

Tests were made back then and there was

line of site to Mt Potosi in Las Vegas

and White Tanks west of Phoenix.

Matt's email is - or was - xxxxx and I

forwarded your newsletter to him. Perhaps

he'll get back to you. From what I hear

the White Tanks repeater is no longer

operational. Ask Ron AE6QU about it.

There is no ATN-AZ activity at all and

the only activity is on the AATV repeater

- and even there there is almost none.


Bil Munsil
K1ATV HAM TV
Hams should be seen as well

as heard.
Mesa AZ

Thanks for the update Bil.

 

Here is some feedback from Matt on the the

Arizona link:

 
Working on moving into a new house so ham is kinda on

the back burner at the moment. There is some hope to

gain building space on Low Getz peak during the

KGMN-FM rebuild project.

Thanks for your feedback Matt.

Oat Mtn. News

___________________________________________ 

 

Oat Mtn. is still operating fine. 

___________________________________________
^ This weeks Joke:

 

A woman and a man are involved in a car accident

on a snowy, cold Monday morning; it's a bad one.  

Both of their cars are totally demolished, but amazingly

neither of them is hurt.   After they crawl out of their

cars, the man is yelling about women drivers.  The woman

says, 'So, you're a man.  That's interesting.  I'm a woman. 

Wow, just look at our cars!  There's nothing left, but we're

unhurt.  This must be a sign from God that we should be

friends and live in peace for the rest of our days.' 

Flattered, the man replies, 'Oh yes, I agree completely,

this must be a sign from God!  But you're still at fault...

women shouldn't be allowed to drive.'

 

The woman continues, 'And look at this,

here's another miracle.  My car is

completely demolished but this bottle

of wine didn't break.  Surely God wants

us to drink this wine and celebrate our

good fortune.'  She hands the bottle

to the man.  

 

The man nods his head in agreement,

opens it and drinks half the bottle and

then hands it back to the woman.   The

woman takes the bottle, puts the cap back

on and hands it back to the man.   

The man asks, 'Aren't you having any?'   

The woman replies, 'No.  

I think I'll just wait for the police...'

ATN-CA Winter Meeting Update
The ATN-CA Newsletter was sent out this week but there
was no mention of what happened at the Winter Meeting.
In fact there was no mention of the meeting.
 
I know that there was a lot going on at the meeting and I
was expecting to get an update about all the changes to
the Constitution and by-laws.
 
I am sure that the "Winter Meeting" is news worthy. What
happened?

 

^ Is Point Loma Moving?

It was brought up on the net this week that the Point Loma

ATV repeater will be moved to a new location.

 

The Point Loma repeater is currently located on the coast

and it's antenna's are at about 440 feet above sea level and

it's coverage is limited. Moving it to a mountain top in the

area should greatly increase it's coverage.

ATN-CA Repeater Report

________________________________________ 
Repairs Needed for the ATN-CA Repeaters
________________________________________
Blueridge:

Mt. Wilson:
1. Install 2.4 GHz Receiver ????
2. Build and install 2.4 GHz receiver for link from Blueridge (on hold 5/5/08)
3. Might need an additional port on the controller????
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. Check into potential problem with 1200 MHz transmitter or amp.(1/24/09)

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

Snow Peak:

1. Repair noise problem on audio.

Point Loma: No Repairs Needed/Fully Operational

Mount Potosi:
