The VA3XPR analog FM repeater is back on the air! After being offline for approximately 3-weeks due to it’s antenna being switched to the digital DMR repeater, the analog FM repeater is now back on the air using a new 2-folded dipole antenna, as shown above at right. Thanks to the generous support of JAG Electromagnetics, the manufacturer of both VA3XPR repeater antennas, the new antenna for the analog FM repeater was installed today, resorting both VA3XPR repeaters to normal operation.

If you haven’t tried it out already, please feel free to check-in to the analog FM repeater to see how the coverage is in your area.
