147.040 W5EXI Repeater Update
By Charlie Morrison N5WE

The 147.04 repeater is back up and on the air.  The Vertex VXR-7000 and 
Arcom RC210 controller has been installed and tuned.  We're currently 
not running a PL tone, but we are transmitting one on the output for 
those who want to use Tone Squelch.  We'll be making further changes as 
time goes on, but the repeater is up and fully functional.
      I've managed to take it as far east along Hwy 190 to Lottie, just 
on the other side of the 4 mile bridge heading towards Livonia.  I've 
also had decent reports past Jefferson Terrace Blvd exit on Hwy 90 
south, and into New Iberia.  Feel free to use this repeater for any 
purposes, and let me know if you head out away from town, how far you 
can manage to use it. I'm hoping for coverage far enough West to carry 
over to a Lake Charles repeater, but we'll see.
      Thanks to Glenn KF5FNP, Pat ND5C, and Roy NG5X helping me out 
getting this project completed.
