The 2 meter repeater is a Motorola MSR 2000. We have a  fan to keep the Tx cool. Cat 200B Repeater Controller, Sinclair (Q222OE) Duplexer. Telewave Inc dual isolator mod. No T-1560.


The 2 meter repeater site. It's on the Peavine Mountain, that is located in at the northwest corner of Washoe County and the Truckee Meadows and about 3.5 miles (5.6 km) due east of the California state at 8049.8FT.  Reno NV is 4,651.


The repeater antenna. Telewave ANT150D single folded dipole antenna covers the 138 - 174 MHz frequency range. This VHF antenna has a precision phasing harness for optimum performance and is terminated with an N male connector. The dipole antenna achieves 1 - 2.5 dBd gain dependent on its pattern and has a maximum power input of 500 watts. This Telewave ANT150D adjustable pattern omni antenna is constructed with 6061-T6 aluminum and is welded at the base for maximum strength. Elements are sealed with a high-tech coating that protects against corrosive gases, UV


The System will work Reno - Sparks and some outer areas. It has access in Dayton, Silver Springs, Fernley, some Carson City and I-80 from Donner Summit at the rest area to Fernley. Parts of Truckee CA . Ka7zau has driven this area to check.  More updates as they come in.


We would like to give a big thank you to Steve N7KP for all his help to make this 2 meter repeater work for us, and Ronnie NV7RP for the help in locating the new site. A big Special Thank you to SNARS, Dave Metts K7UI and High Sierra Communications for the support and usage of the repeater site that the 2 meter system is located in. We thank them for the support and generosity to the Amateur Radio Community and John N7ROJ with help of the feed line.

The 2 Meter Antenna:

As of 9-7-18 we put in a new Telewave ANT150D single folded dipole antenna. It covers the 138 - 174 MHz frequency range. This VHF antenna has a precision phasing harness for optimum performance and is terminated with an N male connector. The dipole antenna achieves 1 - 2.5 dBd gain dependent on its pattern and has a maximum power input of 500 watts. Clamp set is included, need to purchase mast separately.


This Telewave ANT150D adjustable pattern omni antenna is constructed with 6061-T6 aluminum and is welded at the base for maximum strength. Elements are sealed with a high-tech coating that protects against corrosive gases, UV radiation, salt spray, acid rain and wind blown abrasives.

This is a picture of the 220 Repeater and the 2 meter repeater at the Peavine mountain top. The outer shell of the 2 meter repeater was  taken off to place the 220 repeater in a rack with the 2 meter repeater.


On top is the BridgeCom 220 repeater. The rest of the rack below the 220 repeater is the 2 meter repeater. See pictures below for before the shell of the 2 meter repeater was taken off and before the PA upgrade.
