VK6RBP International Beacon

Some troubles were reported with the NCDXF International Beacon at Roleystone on Saturday 29 September 2007.

A visit to the site by Cliff VK6LZ and interested observers that day found that the beacon was shutting down on the 17 metre (18MHz) transmission cycle and resetting the transceiver.

The beacon was shutdown until a site visit on Monday 2 October 2007 by Anthony VK6AXB, Dennis VK6KAD & Heath VK3TWO/6.? Tests found that the power supply for the beacon transceiver was faulty. It was removed for repair and a backup power supply was fitted to the beacon and returned to service.

Thanks to all who attended.
