Victoria Park 70cm Repeater

The Vic Park 70cm repeater VK6RVP was returned to the Vic Park area in 2011. The repeater is currently only running on a Discone antenna so the repeater range is quite limited. When time/equipment permits, The repeater will have a dual band co-linear(previously used for this repeater) installed which should help improve it’s coverage. The new location is less ideal than its location over the past few years, and with a lower mast, though it’s expected that it will still be sufficeient to give coverage to the CBD as was it’s original purpose.

Thanks to William VK6KWT, VK6TWO and VK6FMON for the installation.
