We would like to bring an update regarding the repeaters of the RSSL.
OLIPHANT ESTATE TNL Site Nuwra Eliya
Freq 145.600 -600 Tone access 1750 Hz or even a good whistle . This morning at 2.30 a.m. the RSSL team lead by President Jaliya 4S7JL with Wijay 4S7VJ, Nadika 4S6NCH and Sing 4S6LEO visited the repeater site and replaced a broken antenna and carried out other maintenance work.
Nadika 4S6NCH provided transport in his Land Rover. The repeater is functioning at fairly to good level with the temporary old Diamond FT22 antenna that has replaced the broken FT23. Further repairs will be carried out in the near future.We all owe a big thank you to Jaliya and the team for their service.
YATIYANTOTA: ITN Site 145.625 -600 carrier access. This repeater had been brought down to Colombo for repairs and at the moment is not available for installation which the new administration had made all arrangements to take up to Yatiyantota on Sunday the of 5th June in consultation with custodian Daya 4S7DB. We hope very soon it will be available for installation and for the use of the amateur radio community, which is waiting eagerly.
PIDURUTALAGALA AVIATION SITE: 145.650 -600 carrier accessed. This repeater is functioning with an excellent signal in many parts of the country, but needs little more high power with a directional antenna to access. Work has not been completed to iron out a few issues. In the meantime we urge members to use it as much as possible. I would like to mention the tremendous support extended by the personnel of the Aviation Authority to our installation team lead by Mahinda 4S7PA.
EVENING NET on 145.600 Nuwara Eliya Repeater from today:
9.00 PM RSSL EVENING VHF NET: Since the Yatiyantota repeater has been out of service and under repair the net has been taken intermittently and limited to a radius of about 20 miles from Kelaniya where it is hosted at 4S6TIS’ QTH. Starting today the Net will be taken via the Nuwara Eliya repeater on 145.600 and we urge members who can access Nuwara Eliya to check in.
We wish all our members 73
